Letters: Hills belong to Lin family

Dear Editor,

The majority of our very intelligent City Council voted in favor of the Oak Grove development and for very good reasons. A development plan that benefits our city in several ways was crafted, and work should have been in progress by now.

For no good reason, some of our citizens oppose this development, and initiated a campaign to challenge our City Council's decision. They claim, in their "No on D" signs: Save OUR hills!

But the fact is that the hills do not belong to the opponents of Measure D! They belong to the Lin family, the property owners. Let us not be taken in by this rhetoric, and let us assist the Lin family in developing their property within the guidelines established by the City Council. All citizens of Pleasanton will profit by voting Yes on D!

No on Proposition 16

Carl Walter
