EDITORIAL NARRATIVE – “A Tale of Two Universes – Fresno and San Diego – The Same, Only Different”


AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for February 7, 2014

California’s power grid managers are asking us to conserve power because of a natural gas shortage. The California Independent System Operator issued the “Flex Allert” because of all power usage heating homes in the extreme cold back east. San Diego Gas and Electric is echoing the call for conservation. SDG&E is offering a 75 cent per kilowatt hour credit for people that reduce their power usage between 11:00 AM and 6:00 PM.

San Diego Company and its 400 employees are leaving town for Austin Texas. Websense, a web security software developer founded in 1994, was bought by Texas based Vista Equity Partners. Texas Governor Rick Perry is promoting Texas as a better place to have a business then California. And Perry goes on to say that Vista Equity is going to spend 9.9 million in Texas. However I have to question the long term economic impact … equity companies usually buy then gut companies. So i wonder what will happen to the 400 employees in a year or two. That said … keeping businesses in San Diego is sure to take the front burner in our mayoral race.
