Earthsite Endorses California Clean Jobs Act


Earthsite is proud to announce that we have endorsed the California Clean Energy Jobs Act. This act will close a giant corporate tax loophole and create clean energy jobs for California.

According to their website, “An outrageous tax loophole allows out-of-state corporations to pay lower taxes in California, costing our state a billion dollars a year. This loophole actually rewards companies for creating jobs outside of California. The California Clean Energy Jobs Act closes this loophole by forcing out-of-state corporations to pay their fair share, bringing in much-needed state revenue that will be invested in clean energy and energy efficiency projects, create good-paying jobs, and help fund our schools.”

Dominican University of CA to Host 2010 CA Governor’s Debate


Earthsite is excited to announce that our client Dominican University of California in association with the NBC Universal owned-and-operated California television stations, announced today that it intends to host the 2010 Governor’s debate in October at Angelico Hall. Earthsite will be in charge of the social media campaign for the event.

“As we prepare to choose a new leader, Californians are looking for information. As an institution of higher education that for the past 120 years has educated thousands of Californians, Dominican is delighted to offer a platform for the candidates to address the complex issues facing our State,” said Dominican President Joseph R. Fink.

“Dominican University of California is proud to host this momentous event, and along with the NBC stations, we are committed to making the debate accessible to a wide audience. Of particular importance to us is the prospect of involving so many young people. As we saw during the 2008 Presidential race, college students can play a significant role in the electoral process.”

Dominican and the network owned California stations have agreed to air the debate live throughout the State on NBC Bay Area, KNBC Los Angeles and KNSD San Diego. Combined, the three stations reach 72% of California television viewers.

“I believe that this debate will be one of the most watched conversations on a state and national level,” said Phil Alongi, Executive Producer for the debate and a veteran experienced in producing political and election news coverage. “This year’s mid-term elections will be pivotal in shaping the next chapter of American political history. California’s story plays a big role in the events that will unfold over the next couple of months.”

Angelico Hall, built in 1921 as a music conservatory, will serve as the venue for the debate. As Californians consider the candidates for governor on the June 8th primary ballot, planning is underway for this general election event. Invitations to major candidates will be made in the fall as determined by statewide polls.
