Bad press is good press
Chevron gets a lot of bad press every time an election is held in Richmond, CA and this year it made national news. The talk is always regarding the amount of money the company floods into the campaigns of its “Chevron-friendly” candidates and the PACs it contributes to. Billboards and mailboxes are inundated with messages supporting “their” candidates as well as negative (messages) about the candidates who are critical of the company. But everybody already knows this. It’s not really news.
However, the corporate political player that is so glaringly missing when it comes to talk about money shelled out in Richmond elections is Veolia.
Scratch my back…
Veolia is a French multi-billion dollar company with its origin dating back to 1853
