Letter: No on Measure D

Dear Editor,

I am voting No on Measure D. As Pleasanton residents we already voted to protect our ridgelines from development. Now, another developer push to mar the ridgelines is called Measure D. The promises in their fliers are very misleading. Our schools will not be saved. Fees paid by the proposed ridgeline homeowners cannot be used for classroom programs, reduction of class size, or salaries. What would Measure D provide? It will allow wealthy landowners to bulldoze the ridgelines and erect huge mansions that will blight our beautiful view! These big box houses will be visible from all parts of the city. Let's not make the same mistakes made in other cities. Protect Pleasanton's ridgeline by voting No on measure D.

Linda Garbarino
