I see Jerry as a small business owner in Pleasanton bringing a unique perspective to our Council. He has to understand about making payroll, trying to get things approved in this city, and most important that time is money, something that seems to be lost with some of our Council. Plus he has a long record of community service in Pleasanton. He has my support, the only question is who to give my second vote to?

I feel your pain--ya got Sullivan who wants to add to the drug problem in Pleasanton by considering a Marijuana dispesary and McGovern, self proclaimed ridge protector. Funny how she lives on the Pleasanton Ridge--but that don't count.... AND, oh yeah, they both taking their "Marching Orders" from Kay, a rude and nasty person when you don't agree with her. A real nightmare this is.....
