We all know how impor­tant it is to be sure that our infor­ma­tion is accu­rate when we’re pre­sent­ing it to the pub­lic and to our allies in the strug­gle against glob­al gov­er­nance.  We received some­one’s fly­er about ONE BAY AREA that was full of exag­ger­a­tion and mis­in­for­ma­tion.  It might feel good to put togeth­er some­thing that gets peo­ple riled up, but as soon as they go out to take on the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Plan­ning Orga­ni­za­tion (MPO) and the Coun­cil of Gov­ern­ments (COG) they’ll get an unpleas­ant jolt.  It’s best to stick to the facts: they’re bad enough!

Click here to see a refu­ta­tion of the fly­er mak­ing the rounds in the San Fran­cis­co Bay Area.  Kay Tokerud, Project Coor­di­na­tor for The Post Sus­tain­abil­i­ty Insti­tute put this togeth­er — her com­ments are in bold.
