Yep, I have learned a lot about the next mayoral election. Thank you Pablo, Scott C, curious, justwondering, Stacey and Rat Turd. I just want to expand it "a little". Assumption: let's assume the mayoral position is "symbolic" (just for the sake of conversation), yet they must know stuff (planning, regulations, zoning). Let's also assume that we want to look outside of the "typical box" of only "political experience", yet experience, intelligence and the ability to lead is important. So, why not call on one of our rich, successful CEO's to take on a civic duty of leading our city through the next phase, you know beyond politics, into something substantial. (You know one of the owners of those great mansions I love to envy and look upon). Now, I may be becoming a pest, in that case, gently tell me so (did you hear the word "gently") and I will not bring this subject up again. But, isn't this a good time to become innovative in leadership, see beyond the myopic political realm and ... well do something like get a visionary in Pleasanton? I'm done. Back to socialist soccer for me. (hey dublinmike what is your opinion?)
