Thanks to the efforts of Lomita City Manager, Michael Rock, the City of Lomita has now become the ninth city to unanimously pass the resolution to participate in a Community Choice Power feasibility study. Rock, the former City Manager of Fairfax, California in Marin County, was there when Marin launched its successful Marin Clean Energy program in 2010. His experience and expertise with Community Choice makes him a valuable subject matter expert on the subject.
We met with each member of the Lomita City Council – Mayor Henry Sanchez, Jr., Council member James Gazeley, Council member Mark Waronek, Council member Michael Savidan and Council member Ben Traina, as well as Assistant City Manager, Gary Sugano and Public Works Tom Shahbazi to brief them on our South Bay Clean Power efforts and answer their questions.
The other eight cities which have passed the feasibility study resolutions are Torrance, Carson, Redondo Beach, Santa Monica, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Beverly Hills and Palos Verdes Estates.
