    Sustainable organizations should be more concerned about the inequitable plight of low income residents placed next to the flooded area pictured in Mill Valley’s Tam Valley Hwy.101 freeway than the insurance rates of property owners! Instead they choose to criticize the only sustainable organization that speaks to the offensive policy of putting low income people next to the toxic pollutants of high traffic freeways and major roads subjecting them to well documented public health and safety hazards!
