Sonoma County to President Obama: Replace DeMarco

Residents of Sonoma County have their eye on one government bureaucrat killing jobs in their community. Their target: our old friend Ed DeMarco. Sonoma County enrolled over a thousand homes and spent over $30 million to retrofit them under Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) before DeMarco suspended the program. The county sued Ed DeMarco's agency back in July for their role in undermining the energy retrofit program. At the time, county supervisor Shirlee Zane said, "The mantra from Washington for the past year and a half has been, 'create green jobs.' The federal government is throwing a roadblock in the way of green jobs because a regulatory agency is telling us what to do and Congress won't stop them. ... We're really angry at Washington - it's pure hypocrisy." Now, they've written a letter to the White House telling them to replace Ed DeMarco for his role in killing the PACE program and blocking help to struggling homeowners. Read the letter below, and sign on to the petition to Fire Ed DeMarco.
