We must, as citizens, provide oversight of our local governmental bodies. They can't be trusted to oversee themselves. You can help! Read how here: COPs Program

Election Oversight

Citizens' Oversight is expanding our election oversight scope to the entire US! However, we will be focused primarily on the TOP 175 counties in the nation, comprising more than 50% of registered voters, and then secondly turning our attention to the TOP 20% of the the top 20% of the states (i.e. the top ten states).

CPUC and San Onofre

Federal Lawsuit Filed

With the help of the law firm of Aguirre & Severson LLP, Citizens Oversight has filed a federal lawsuit on the UNCONSTITUTIONAL "taking" of ratepayer funds without delivering power.

Rampant Corruption

We have obtained more than 7,200 pages of emails and other correspondence as a result of the CPRA (California Public Records Act) request by the City of San Bruno regarding the PG&E Gas Line Explosion in San Bruno in 2010, which killed 8, injured scores, and demolished city blocks in San Bruno. These emails show a pattern of close coordination between the CPUC -- the California Public Utilities Commission -- and the utilities they are supposed to regulate, including PG&E. We are still digesting these but an initial reading shows a pattern of collusion to manipulate stock prices, coordinate press releases, shop for judges and rig the proceedings to benefit the utilities. We believe this culture of corruption goes beyond isolated incidents and is a systemic in extent.

COPs acts as umbrella organization for Coalition to Decommission San Onofre as a party to the investigation by the California Public Utilities Commission, which is still an ongoing concern despite the recent announcement of a shutdown at San Onofre!
  • WE WIN! Southern California Edison has announced a permanent shutdown at San Onofre! Read more: Shut San Onofre
  • Stop The Unfair Settlement-- Please help us stop the unfair San Onofre settlement. See this page for ideas on how you can help!
  • Community Engagement Panel (CEP) -- CDSO pushed for this group to be set up and they set it up!
    • Just completed this meeting: May 22, 6-9pm at The Hills Hotel, 25205 La Paz Rd, Laguna Hills
    • Will be a workshop sometime in June, and then another big meeting in August. These will be processing the PSDAR (Post Shutdown Activities Report) and the DCE (Detailed Cost Estimate).

  • Water Fluoridation -- We need help to get the word out that water fluoridation does not help improve dental health, and puts our children (and us!) at risk.
    • Want a free copy of the DVD Fluoridegate? Please contact us and we will send you a copy!
