Friends of… People for… Pleasanton First… Concerned Pleasanton…
Ten people with one name sway our City leaders far too often. You included Mr. Thorne. It’s not just the money… Listen to the needs of the total community. We have very healthily financial reserves we are told. May I suggest we use some of the monies to survey and understand the real desires/needs of Pleasanton. Don’t leave every critical decision to our elitist City leaders and the creatively named conclaves of Pleasanton. One voice with a good plan is better than ten voices with a bad one. Stop the special interests running our town!
