AZ utility board member responds to LA boycott over SB1070

The Los Angeles city council voted to boycott Arizona.  LA currently gets about 25% of their power from Arizona.

If an economic boycott is truly what you desire, I will be happy to encourage Arizona utilities to renegotiate your power agreements so Los Angeles no longer receives any power from Arizona-based generation. I am confident that Arizona’s utilities would be happy to take those electrons off your hands. If, however, you find that the City Council lacks the strength of its convictions to turn off the lights in Los Angeles and boycott Arizona power, please reconsider the wisdom of attempting to harm Arizona’s economy.

The Mayor of LA says the point was to hurt the economy of AZ, not LA.  Oh, well, then that makes perfect sense.
