Antonio the green

Mayor Villaraigosa's pro-environment appointments are analyzed by Copley's David Zahniser in today's Breeze. He includes Mary Nichols and David Nahai, who he reports are expected to be named to the Department of Water and Power commission (as Rick Orlov reported last week in the Daily News.) In the piece, Mark Gold of Heal the Bay says of Villaraigosa: "His goal is to make Los Angeles the greenest major city in America. And by putting such strong environmental leadership in so many different positions, that's the sort of experience you need to make that vision possible."
