Tommy Helps Lead No on B Efforts

Tommy Appearance on Unherd TV
Tommy recently filled in for his friend, colleague and 91X boss Halloran on Unherd TV on ABC-10, joining hosts Alex Zaragoza and Jeff Terich to talk about one of his all-time favorite albums from one of his favorite bands: R.E.M.'s 1986 release Life's Rich Pageant.
Enviro. Dems. Celebrate Anniversary
Thank you to all the sponsors, club members and attendees who made the San Diego County Democrats for Environmental Action second anniversary event at Ponce's a mammoth success, with special thanks to Daraka Larimore-Hall, Renée Owens and Deborah Gostin.
San Diego Adopts Plastic Bag Ban
After years of work by Surfrider San Diego, the Sierra Club, San Diego Coastkeeper and other organizations, the San Diego City Council voted to approve Item 332 in July – the ban on single-use, disposable plastic bags in the city of San Diego.

SDCDEA is promoting a slate of endorsed candidates and ballot initiative positions, and is lending renewed focus to the California Coastal Commission and protecting the county's open space.
Environmental Leader and Advocate
An outdoorsman with a specialty in parks and wilderness, Tommy's media and communications work with the San Diego Surfrider chapter and Oregon Wild in
Portland led to greater press and narrative control for both organizations, and as president of San Diego County Democrats for Environmental Action Tommy continues to preside over the club's growth while leading on issues like municipal composting, wildfire policy, and open space and habitat preservation.
