The failure of the School Board, the City, and State officials to deal with the toxic petrochemicals at the Portola High School site is astonishing. Sad to say, this reflects the kind of indifference, incompetence and arrogance that led to the tragic lead-poisoning of an entire city — Flint, Michigan. Read our Front-Page story in this month’s print edition. And then join your neighbors in the Call to Test for Toxics.
I also urge you to read our Page 3 story. It is the personal testimony of Mary Ann Gaido, the sole Irvine Planning Commissioner with the backbone to say NO to the overdevelopment that is damaging our entire City. See what this means to Irvine’s largest center-city village, Woodbridge.
As always, thank you for reading Irvine Community News & Views.
