Coastal Commission Considers Firing Director

The California Coastal Commission is considering whether to fire its executive director, Charles Lester. The board has not given a reason for his proposed dismissal, but many environmental advocates see it as a board coup aimed at giving freer reign to developers seeking to build along the coast. Supporters of Lester turned out en masse at a commission hearing in Morro Bay. Christopher Martinez reports.
