Thorne honored for work on behalf of veterans

by Jeb Bing

Members of the Pleasanton Military Families Support Group have honored Mayor Jerry Thorne for his city and civic efforts on behalf of Pleasanton veterans and those now on active duty in Afghanistan. The group surprised the mayor at a recent City Council meeting with applause, compliments and the presentation of plaques and flags commemorating the sacrifices of Pleasanton soldiers and those who support them.

With his wife Sandi at his side, Thorne thanked the group, which he frequently joins at homecoming gatherings for returning service men and women.

"We can't begin to tell you how much it means to us and how touched we are," Thorne said. "We are truly blessed to be associated with such a dedicated group of fantastic people."
