Sylvia Siegel was a pioneering activist whose tenacious defense of consumers and the poor will be severely missed. All communities need an outspoken advocate who asks the difficult questions and gets results. Sylvia did both.
Sylvia’s work spared millions of Californians from paying higher utility rates, and her zeal inspired people across the state. We will both miss Sylvia and her passion for pursuing the public good.

This blog was created in memory of my mother, Sylvia Siegel, who passed away peacefully in her sleep on 8/18/2007. It's intended to serve as a collection point for articles written about her, and for any type of anecdotes that anyone would care to share. So feel free to post entries and share. If you want to be added to the list of contributors, just send me an e-mail and I'll add you to the list. Also in my mom's memory, I will use this as a vehicle to post consumer-oriented information, especially related to telecommunications.
