Letter: No ridgeline mega-mansions

Dear Editor,

Houses on the southeast hills and ridges in Pleasanton? Vote "no" on this "grandfathered-in" development! If you voted to protect our hills in the last election, then vote "no" on Measure D/Oak Grove mega-mansions. This development was approved before the Measure PP and QQ election in November 2008. It is now the law, but this development was approved before that election, so they are trying to slip it in under the radar. Be educated in June 2010.

This developer has tried it all: suing the city, suing the petitioners, huge donations to political candidates, and now making misleading statements of $2 million dollars to repair our school budget operating shortfalls. It is the law, developer money can only fund facilities and capital expenditures like a new roof - it does NOT pay for teacher salaries. When the funds finally come, it will be after the houses are built - many years from now.

This subdivision doesn't follow the current law. Vote No on Measure D on June 8!

Karla Brown Co-chair for No on Measure D/No on Oak Grove Mega-mansions
