"Now that redistricting is complete, I am pleased and excited to begin what I expect to be a long and fruitful relationship with Pleasanton," Miley said. "From the First Wednesday events, to meetings with City Council members, the City Manager and staff, to a special welcome from the Chamber of Commerce, to numerous one-on-one interactions with community leaders, I have felt the warmth and pride so many of you express for your city.
"My goal is to be a partner in Pleasanton's ongoing success."
Miley listed some of the 2011 highlights in District 4:
* Seamlessly transitioning Pleasanton and Hillcrest Knolls into District 4 as a result of redistricting;

* Completing many of the Eden Area Livability Initiative working groups' goals and creating a progress report to measure success;
* Kicking off major construction projects, including the Ashland Youth Center, Castro Valley Boulevard street improvements, sidewalks in Cherryland, and Lewelling Boulevard street improvements;

"I would like to thank all of you who were involved in any of our many 2011 projects and accomplishments," Miley said. "Without your support, involvement and dedication, we would not have been able to accomplish our 2011 goals and successfully serve you."
