Where candidates stand on Reach Codes, trees, zero-carbon efforts and more

Piedmont Connect, the nonprofit organization based in town that advocates for sustainability policies in city and PUSD operations and works on raising sustainability awareness in the community, recently posed a series of questions to candidates for local offices.

Betsy Smegal Andersen and Jen Long, who are both currently serving on City Council, were restricted by the Brown Act from publicly stating their positions on any specific issues that are already pending before the Council, or likely to be coming before the Council.

Shirley Hooi did not respond to any of the questions.

Piedmont Connect is a 501(c)3 organization and cannot endorse political candidates.

  1. That’s a pretty broad interpretation of the Brown Act by the City Attorney. I can see how it applies to items currently before Council – the housing element, city administrator hire, electrification rebate program. The issues in the questionnaire are not at Council and unlikely to be before the election so what’s the risk of serial communications?
