Lobbying heats up for Berkeley National Lab

Friday, July 15, 2011

imageRichmond and Alameda are pulling out all the stops in the bidding war for the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s second campus, including billboards, lawn signs, and, in Richmond’s case, lapel buttons. (That’s Richmond’s official illustration of what the campus might look like.) So why is the campaign relatively quiet among the three Berkeley sites also competing? Berkeleyside’s Tracey Taylor explains:

The main reason for that is that the three Berkeley-related bids were submitted by private companies, unlike in Richmond and Alameda where the cities signed off on the bids.

She adds: “So, if the campaigning and lobbying is happening—and you can be sure it is—it’s just more under the radar in Berkeley than elsewhere.”
