Asian American Commercial Watch: PG&E is Me: Hear from Sandy

AACW_PGE_SandyLiving in the San Francisco Bay Area, it’s no surprise that I see television commercials for Pacific Gas & Electric (commonly known as PG&E). So it was nice to see this ad highlighting a San Francisco native, Sandy Locke, talk about her role at PG&E as a gas distribution central design supervisor. No doubt, PG&E is trying to improve it’s image, given the 2010 San Bruno pipeline explosion it was responsible for, which killed eight people and destroyed 38 homes in the resulting explosion and fire. Of course, PG&E is most famously portrayed in the movie, Erin Brockovich.

Still, I am sure Locke is sincere in the commercial about safety. She does highlight that she was born and raised in San Francisco and still lives in the city with her entire family. It is in her best self interest to make sure that PG&E gas pipelines are safe.
