Martinez, California – Contra Costa County District Attorney Diana Becton and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s Chief Counsel Alexander Crockett, announced a joint civil enforcement action against the Martinez Refining Company (MRC).

This joint civil action will involve multiple agencies, including the Air District, Department of Fish and Wildlife, and Contra Costa County Health. These agencies have referred notices of violation and enforcement referrals against the Martinez Refining Company. This will include enforcement claims stemming from a 2022 release that occurred during the Thanksgiving holiday, as well as additional enforcement claims. It is a collaborative effort to enforce the law and ensure public safety.

“The goal of this joint effort with the Air District is to achieve a resolution that ensures environmental compliance, and to rebuild and foster a safer community for the residents of Martinez.” District Attorney Becton said.

“We welcome the opportunity to work collaboratively with the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office as we take a comprehensive approach to ensure MRC’s compliance with all air quality regulations,” said Alexander Crockett, Chief Counsel of the Air District. “This partnership combines our prosecutorial resources to help ensure we achieve the best possible results for the residents of Martinez.”

Hey, remember when Becton ran Soros-funded commercials on TV during her reelection campaign about how she fined a steel company 4 million dollars? Yeah, that was fun. Operations there will cease December 31st and all 600 or so middle class employees will be terminated. Glad Becton is all about accountability, especially with all the thugs in Antioch or Walnut Creek or Brentwood doing their thing and not getting charged for it, and her concept of equitable justice, or whatever its called.

Just like the EPA and these corporate lawsuits, another way to fleece companies doing work in the Bay Area. Sad day when the Steel Mill is no longer around. Generations of families worked there. Back in the day everybody knew somebody that worked there. Who else remembers the Steel Mill basketball league? My Little League Coach worked there. Shout out Coach Torres

Corrupt Becton and her ring of clowns November 17, 2023 - 1:49 pm

It would be nice if Soros owned corrupt and racist Becton would do her job. She and her weak ass command staff Arnold Threets and Larry Wallace should actually run a DAs office that prosecutes criminals and gives a shit about the quality of life the thugs, in specifically Antioch have destroyed.
They are a corrupt and racist office and are largely to blame for the rampant criminal behavior that is so prevalent in the county now.
