VIDEO: Benicia Planning Commission Hearings Feb. 8-11

By Roger Straw, February 27, 2016

Highly recommended: two brilliant outtakes

Benicia’s own videographer, Dr. Constance Beutel, is reducing the 20 hours of Planning Commission hearings into watchable shorts. I understand that she has winnowed the 20 hours down to 4, and has produced these two beautiful outtakes.  (If you only have time for one, I’d recommend you watch the first, “Oxygen and Crude By Rail.”)
