I am not shocked at the negative comments I am reading because of the fact that Pleasanton is filled with right wing, tea party people. I happen to like the Mayor and for people to make personal attacks is uncalled for. Many things have been accomplished over time she has been the Mayor of Pleasanton. We should be fortunate to live in a country where we can express ourselves and stand up for what we believe without being ridiculed for our personal way of life.

I'm sure this is exaggerated and overblown. Knowing Stanford well, I doubt she has that title and likely she is violating Stanford rules on use of the Stanford name and affiliation (if any agiliation really exists). In any case, the continuing studies program is not mainstream campus, and does not count for credit. Hostrerman in Congress would be a disaster!

What a joke!!!! The Hippy Mayor, one of The Three Stooges teaching at Stanford??? She obviously isn't teaching anything about the law because I don't think she ever passed the bar despite multiple attempts, so she can't even practice law, much less teach law. Is her class going to be on left-wing loonism in local government? Or, how to run a local government into the ground?
Come on, folks -- Pleasanton has suffered enough from The Hippy Mayor and her fellow two stooges on the City Council. The last thing we need is to have this loon as our Congressperson.
Also, I sure hope someone responsible decides to run for Mayor, because we also don't need one of the other two Stooges (Cook-Kallio or Thorne) becoming Mayor after the third Stooge, The Hippy Mayor's, horrible tenure.

I read the comments, because they are much more interesting than Ple weekly stories, before the article and my heart did a jump for joy when I read your commment. Going back to the article, it says Stark said it MAY be his last term. sigh.....
