WATCH: Council Passes Resolution Calling for CPUC President's Removal

In the resolution, Mayor Jim Ruane said CPUC President Michael Peevey hasn't demonstrated that he has adequate respect for the residents in San Bruno and throughout the state with his handling of the PG&E proceedings.

The City Council on Tuesday joined residents and other local leaders in calling for the removal of the CPUC president from his post by unanimously approving a resolution.

The resolution was approved the day after a group of residents took similar action, urging Gov. Jerry Brown to replace California Public Utilities Commission President Michael Peevey with someone new.

In this video, Mayor Jim Ruane reads the resolution at the council meeting.

It's good the Mayor and City Council are continuing to defend San Bruno against the tactics of PG&E. Thank you.

Congratulations to the San Bruno City Council for sanctioning the CPUC, Michael Peevey, and of course PG&E. Rate payers' safety was ignored while investors' profits were passed out. Rate payers should not have to pay one dime to rectify PG&E's crime. Who else oversees the CPUC but us, the ratepayers, Jerry Brown, and our San Bruno City Council. Good Job so far.

The people in San Bruno have a right to be concerned about Commissioner Peevey, as well as others at the CPUC. Peevey has a history of refusing to impose fines, and now, there is a $32 million dollar money trail to explain the motive. Governor Jerry Brown's cousin, Geoffrey Brown was a CPUC Commissioner from 2001-2007. Geoffrey Brown is currently being investigated for money laundering and his involvement in a sham charity called "CaliforniaALL." Google "Leslie Brodie Report CPUC Brown". Former CPUC Commissioner Geoffrey Brown still has influence at the CPUC. He is dating President Peevey's Chief of Staff, and taking "business" trips with CPUC employees, compliments of PG&E and other Utilities under the jurisdiction of the CPUC. Google "Don Bauder CPUC". See part 2 in next comment.

Part 2 : In 2003, Commissioner Geoffrey Brown, and Commissioner Peevey refused to impose fine upon Utilities, when found guilty of violating Public Utility Laws. Others at the CPUC thought this was strange. I have an email from a CPUC employee who explains the legal requirement to impose fines -- he is currently a CPUC Judge. Google "Richard Smith CPUC fines". After the San Bruno fire, the State Senate asked why the CPUC did not impose fines upon PG&E for violations to Public Utility Laws. The CPUC gave vague answers. One response from a CPUC Official, was that the CPUC was trying to maintain a "friendly" relationship with PG&E. I contacted the CPUC by email, requesting a meeting. In response, the CPUC sent the State Police to my front door, in some bizarre attempt to intimidate me. The Police were professional. The CPUC told the Police that the CPUC doesn't impose fines when an individual proves a Utility violated laws. Google "CPUC State Police Grau" I asked the FBI to investigate. The FBI needed a money trail. A person who goes by the name "Yolo Rabbi" discovered a $32 million dollar money trail linked to Geoffrey Brown and other CPUC Officials. After he discovered the money trail, his computer was seized in a search warrant by those who can be linked to the money trail. He posted a letter to the FBI, explaining the frauds linked to the money trail. Google "leslie brodie yolo rabbi fbi July 11, 2012".
