Welcome Tim Hunt,

I hope you can shed light on the corrution with re-zoning and housing density affecting the future of the Pleasanton commnity and local area. Housing affordability and density are being manipulated for the proffit of developers. More affordable housing may be needed, but the proposed density of that housing is going to bring the quality of life down in this town. I hope you will be a true champion of rightiouse issues and that you will not just tow the line.

Good luck

I have no problem with high density housing if there is racial/ethnic balance.

catch my drift?

cholo, we have to assume you mean for Livermore, since you don't live in the Pleasanton city limits. You can advocate for all the social engineering you want in your town...butt out of ours. Catch my drift?
