Recently at a Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce luncheon, Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty challenged our mayor to put in the Stoneridge Drive extension through to El Charro as soon as possible, saying that the county would pay for it. What a great offer to the City of Pleasanton. The sooner this "gift" could be implemented into reality, the less it would cost. Pleasanton needs to compromise with the county to solve a major traffic problem. Stoneridge Drive has been in the General Plan since 1965.
As a candidate for the Pleasanton City Council, if elected, I will make it a first priority of mine to accept Supervisor Haggerty's generous offer to install and complete Stoneridge Drive immediately, as opposed to not doing it, or putting it off until some future date. Pleasanton voters concerned with traffic congestion, and fiscal responsibility, hopefully will support my position.
