KHSL - Several grassroots groups are coming together to inform fire victims about the PG&E settlement vote and are hoping to get everyone to wait until Mother's Day to cast their vote.
Many fire survivors have come together to form groups such as the Wildfire Victims Settlement Discussion Group and the Survivors of the PG&E Fires. These groups are working towards informing other survivors as well as organizing everyone to make an informed and impactful vote.
A website has been created, pgefireinfo.com to gather all information and updates.
Recently these groups have started a movement to hold off on their votes until Mother's Day this May. On their website they say:
"On April 6, 2020, the Tort Claims Committee that represents all PG&E fire victims filed a motion with the Bankruptcy Court to approve a letter to all fire victims urging them to hold their votes until May 2020. Here's a link to the Motion.
The TCC asserts that PG&E is trying to change the deal by (i) delaying the funding date to December 31, 2020 (instead of August 29, 2020), and (ii) issuing stock to the Fire Victims Trust that will be worth far less than $6.75 billion promised by PG&E publicly. The TCC has given PG&E until April 28, 2020, to fix these problems. Although Judge Montali denied granting an order that would have compelled PG&E to pay for distributing this letter, the Judge did not prohibit the TCC from sending it. You can find the letter HERE.
We recommend not voting until May so the TCC has time to negotiate on the fire victim’s behalf."
