I'm all for keeping land protected from development. However your "way of life" will not be "permanently destroyed" if that doesn't happen. Let's at least try once on this to not make everything seem like the world is going to fold in on itself if something isn't done to stop whatever the imaginary threat of the week is.

M, the world just may if we don't curb our sprawl. If the natural lands surrounding our communities are developed our air and water quality WILL be decreased. Our home values WILL decrease (more homes = less demand, and no views = less value. Not to mention the recreational and educational opportunities that WILL be lost (due to no natural lands, habitats or wildlife corridors). No one should be apathetic about what happens in our government or environment. Please be informed and VOTE. I know I looked into Measure W and will be voting NO. I hope you join me.

San Ramon, the city with the $300,000+ city manager, wants to destroy Tassajara Valley, just like it previously chopped off the top of the hills and ridges of Dougherty Valley, and filled it with houses from end to end. Vote No on W!

These developers are going to experience a wrath like no other from the people. Time to show them whose town this is
