by Jeremy B. White

An array of elected officials will be in Oakland today for an economic summit sponsored by the left-leaning Greenlining Institute, among them the California Energy Commission’s David Hochschild, the California Public Utilities Commission’s Catherine Sandoval and Sen. Kevin de León, D-Los Angeles, who is winning something called the “Big Brain Award.” Keynoting is Richard Cordray, head of the beloved-by-liberals-and-reviled-by-conservatives Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
