Letters to the Editor: Reach codes, small business, Kiwanis thanks

GreenTown Los Altos supports reach codes

Blue skies and clean air. The pandemic is a terrible price to pay, but clean air is wonderful.

GreenTown Los Altos strives to be the environmental face of Los Altos and Los Altos Hills with creek cleanups, tree plantings, bike rides, and more. We also want to encourage everyone to stop burning fossil fuels in their homes and in their cars, a leading contribution to climate change – and that brings us to reach codes. Reach codes “reach” beyond the Title 24 codes that require energy efficiency in building construction.

Letters to the Editor: Conflict of interest, racism, development

Mayor Pepper has conflict of interest

Los Altos is considering reach codes to ban natural gas in all new homes. The codes were written by Silicon Valley Clean Energy and Peninsula Clean Energy.

Mayor Jan Pepper is the CEO of Peninsula Clean Energy. Her position presents a clear conflict of interest, which is why I filed complaints with the Fair Political Practices Commission.

Letters to the Editor: Reach codes, COVID and teens

Support reach codes for greater good

For those residents who are objecting to the proposed new reach codes, I would like to call their attention to parallels with the current difficulties of fighting an invisible enemy: the coronavirus.

There were many countries that were slow to react to this insidious threat, resulting in health consequences due to the slowness of adopting preventive actions.
