I recently met Brock at a Human Services meeting and was greatly impressed with his compassion, intelligence and desire to do the right things.

I agree completely with this honor bestowed on Brock. I served with him on the Human Services Comm. for awhile and his leadership and manor was always filled with compassion. He also has a great sense of humor.

I don't know Mr. Roby but I know he is the current Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce here in Pleasanton. I can't help but make the connection to recently elected Jerry Thorne and his promise to cow tow to local businesses, now starting with this award. Politics run amuck!
