Been following it closely. It has always seemed to be related to disagreement over management styles, which this article addresses, while others don't even mention it. It is also strange to understand how much influence an ED can directly have on the voting decisions of the CCC because each commissioner has its own staff to analyze and help them decide on projects. While I love the activism and passion that people in California
have, everything seems to get uber politicized. Don't ever get them started on off-leash dogs!
