Blog: In Support of Mayor Eric J. Coleman

A supporter of Eric J. Coleman for mayor of Redondo Beach explains why Coleman is the best choice for office.

I began this blog in support of my longtime friend Eric James Coleman, a current candidate for Mayor of Redondo Beach.

I have known and respected Mr. Coleman for 7 years, and support his candidacy and policies regarding Measure A (YES!) and budget spending for the city of Redondo Beach.

The coastal power plant was initially important in order to cool the Edison engines, but now, especially with the California Coastal Commision ruling that Power Plant engines can no longer be cooled by ocean water, we no longer need the AES power plant on coastal locations. We have other sources of energy; other power plants can easily make up the difference in the grid's energy. The AES power plant will riddle us with particulate emissions and add nothing but unhealthy emissions to our immediate environment. 

Let us undo the ties that bind us to industry, big business, and environmental devastation. 

Support Eric Coleman as the future mayor of Redondo Beach, and let us usher in a new period of freedom from corporate and morally irresponsable tyrants that keep our city at the mercy of big business interests and conceal the true motivations of those in "power" (and who is in power?) of the decisions that rightfully belong to the citizens of our city.

Refreshing. I'm so sick of hearing excuse after excuse from Gin

Where does Eric stand on an idea in city council about banning wood burning fireplaces

After reading that, all I know is that he's against the power plant, but really nothing more.

Sounds like the "Occupy" crowd have set up shop in Redondo!

Eric Coleman at least had the backbone/moral fortitude to come out against the polluting power plant, which is more than our Mayor Mike Gin, Steve Aspel, Pat Aust, or Matt Kilroy had the courage to do in the face of the same FACTS presented to them by the & State Commissions who reported to the City Council last year. Mayor Gin said, in summary to the reports, "This is good;we followed due diligence." Now he is, as the others who heard the same FACTS, campaigning for AES' corporate agenda. The expression from the French is " To what good? ,

Eric Coleman looks and acts a little on the crazy side, but at least he has the balls to take on AES and all of the other cowardly Redondo bureaucrats, (Aspel, Gin, Kilroy, Aust, etc), that are SO afraid of an AES lawsuit that they can't lose. Coleman gets my vote.

How so? Because citizens are concerned about subsidizing pollution?

That's as stupid and irrelevant as the "hammers kill more people than guns" B.S.

So as long as he fits your one issue, he can look and act crazy to receive your vote. The measure a supporters seem to like candidates who act wild and crazy. The old saying fits...birds of a feather...! I think Coleman smokes too much pot to be the mayor. His crazy idea about the red car will never happen, he is the only one who thinks its a viable option.

Kelly, to present different ideas and come from a different perspective does not make Eric crazy. People thought Edison was crazy... I guess you think people who DON'T think like you are crazy. Well, I guess I am , too and the thousands of folks who put Yes on A on the ballot. Vote Yes , all you "crazies" for the future of Redondo Beach! Might be time to look at this issue with an open mind for a change.
