Careful Benicia! Don't bite the hand that has been feeding you!
Maybe time for some of that back room jousting! Then hit the press with tough stance, while accomplishing otherwise... raise local taxes on top of it!

Valero has already pulled up the WELCOME mat anyway and stopped funding schools and city projects as they had in the past. Now everything has to go through Texas because they have to keep their obscene revenues to fight our Initiatives.

America is broken and cannot be fixed. Whenever you have a tiny fraction of our citizenry in control, who have zero business experience or understanding of how and what business does for out country, then we ALL are made to suffer. This whole "enviornmental" lunacy has been forced upon us by the well-connected opportunists like Al Gore and his ilk for so long now that it has become politically expedient to paint enterprise as evil. Just think what Vallejo could have become if it werent' for this Gomes person stopping the LNG plant once proposed, or the Walmart; both killed by a selfish, small-time political hack.
