Paradise has been our family’s home for over 30 years. We lost our family, social, and community support to the Camp Fire. Our community had a special bond and a wonderful and unique way of life only residents will ever understand.
The PG&E-caused Camp Fire took this away from survivors. There are opposing sides for PG&E’s plan proposal to end bankruptcy. PG&E has done a splendid job pitting victims against each other and taking the focus off their defective and risky proposed plan. PG&E incinerated our Camp Fire communities. Our
focus should be on PG&E, not each other.
We need to determine our own destiny based on facts found in court documents and fact-based media reports. Do not trust anyone but yourself to determine your own best interest. Fire victims are the only creditors required to take stock. All other creditors get cash when the bankruptcy ends. Facts such as PG&E possibly not having the cash funding to make the initial $5.4 billion payment to the Trust Fund by August 29, 2020 and the other $1.3 billion coming from undetermined tax savings for 2021 and 2022 should be publicized for informed decision making.
Another fact is there are alternative proposals PG&E rejected, causing victims to have no awareness of them.
Educate yourselves on what PG&E’s proposed plan does to us. Review Prime Clerk to discover for yourself the risk to you of PG&E’s plan. I am voting “Reject.” I will not be burned twice at the hands of PG&E.
