Pay for Spray?

by Mark Reback
Thanks to a heads up from some tipsters in the Monterey area, ArnoldWatch has learned that despite protests by the Monterey community and a unanimous vote of the City Council, Suterra, a company whose owner Stewart A. Resnick is among the top 100 donors to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, began aerial pesticide spraying over the Monterey area this week.

The blog Incontiguous Brick explains that the goal was to eliminate the Light Brown Apple Moth (LBAM) from the Monterey area before it spread to agricultural centers and potentially did more damage. However, Suterra, the maker of the pesticide spray, assured the public that it is completely safe, even though it has not been tested fully by the EPA.

Is Arnold playing pay for spray with one of his biggest donors, without regard for the public health?
