In the Aug. 15 article, ("It's Brozosky v. Hosterman again," News, page 5) Brozosky said he would be a more open mayor and listen to the citizens but his track record displays his hypocrisy on open representative government:
* Brozosky pushed the waterslide project along Stanley Boulevard that would have brought 200,000 additional people traveling through Pleasanton neighborhoods to get to the waterslide park (now buildings from this bankrupt project sit as a weed-covered eyesore). Many locals were opposed to the project and spent time before City Council where Brozosky ignored neighborhood concerns and rushed this project through (and made sure that it could not be repealed in a referendum).
* In 2006 he hired an outside PR firm (linked to the corrupt and anti-environmental Pombo folks) called Spinnovation Strategies (yes really, that is the name and their motto is "spin wins"). He took lots of money from outside developers/lobbyists and heavily outspent the mayor in his losing campaign.
* He posed as an environmentalist when he ran for City Council but his voting record showed his loyalty to the special interest lobbyists such as the waterslide group. Do not believe his current interest in protecting Pleasanton's hills. Follow the money and see who is providing financial backing for Brozosky and see what they want for their money.
* You mentioned the Hosterman email issue but did not discuss that Brozosky's email account mysteriously disappeared and could not be similarly examined for irregularities.
I urge citizens to re-elect Jennifer Hosterman as mayor, we can trust her.
