Dear Friends, 4-6-2015
We now have the published agenda (attached) for tonight’s Abq City Council vote on resolution R-15-77, opposing PNM’s San Juan nuke & coal power plan.
Based on what we’ve learned, we are offering two options for those wanting to attend. Here is what we know and recommend:
1. PNM has asked their business allies to attend the council by 5PM and sign up for public comments. Comments occur twice in the meeting – 1st shortly after the council starts and 2nd when the agenda topic comes up. Sign-up for comments occurs between 4:30-5:30. There is a limit of 30 who can sign up.
2. The vote on R-15-77 is scheduled late in the meeting, as item 14-m. If there is a large public showing, the council MAY choose to pull this topic in early or it may happen later as scheduled. We have to be flexible.
3. We recommend offering attendees two options:
A) Some may want to arrive by 4:30-5pm, and sign up to comment early. We do want to ensure that PNM cannot pack the early sign-in sheet to the 30 limit with only their folks. This also ensures we have a presence if the council pulls the topic in earlier. Those who comment early could leave if it appears our vote will be late in the evening.
B) Others may want to come later, by 6PM, and sign in for the 2nd comment period. These folks should be prepared to stay later into the meeting and comment when our vote comes up as item 14-m.
Jim Mackenzie will arrive as part of the early group to coordinate and answer questions.
I will come by 6PM as part of group 2.
See you there!
Thanks for your support in pushing back against PNM’s plans to replace power from the San Juan generating station with more coal and nuclear.
The Abq City Council will vote Monday 4/6/2015 on a bill opposing PNM’s San Juan nuke & coal power plan.
We want a yes vote. We expect opposition this time, so a strong showing is vital.
Please plan to attend Monday 4/6/2015 for the Abq City Council vote on San Juan.

PNM and the ‘NM Business Coalition’ has sent this action alert to get their business members to attend and speak against this resolution and in favor of PNM’s nuke and coal plan. We expect lots of opponents to attend, so we need a big showing by clean energy supporters to speak in favor of R-15-77.
You can also help by sending an email to all city councilors via their web site – click here.
You can say simply that you support clean energy in NM and ask your councilor to ‘vote yes on R-15-77’.
Please attend if you can!
