Kayser to DWP: Give Schools a Discount

Support LA School reports year-end campaign. All donations will be matched dollar for dollar.
Here’s an interesting idea from School Board Member Bennett Kayser’s LA Times op-ed this morning: make the Department of Water and Power (DWP) give LAUSD a discount.
“In San Francisco, public schools get deeply discounted electricity from the local utility under an agreement forged decades ago,” he writes.
The DWP, one of the most powerful institutions in the city, has been the subject of much controversy in the Mayor’s race, thanks in part to the DWP union’s massive independent campaign on behalf of candidate Wendy Greuel.
