Your Elected Officials Speak with Authority

The L.A. Times reports that the County is thinking of introducing incentives to County employees who use hybrid or other greener vehicles. That's great, as long as they don't put Second District Supervisor Yvonne Brathwaite Burke in charge of the program:
So, what would it take to make the supervisors themselves trade in the Cadillacs, Chryslers and Buicks they now use to commute to work?
"Not very much," said Burke, who drives a six-cylinder Chrysler 300. "I really like the way the Prius looks, and if I could make sure that I have access to electricity or to the fuel source, I'd be fine."
(In fact, the Prius, made by Toyota, automatically recharges its battery and runs on regular gasoline.)
