Oh, Goody! I look forward to talking to Gina and Jeb about thier left-wing-loon editorial policies; as well as their endorsements of left-wing-loon and union-loving politicians like The Hippy Mayor and Councilperson and Mayor wannabee Cook-Kallio.

Thank you Gina, Jeb and team for all that you do for this community. You play a vital role with sharing news, information and perspectives which helps to bring this community together and grow.
While I don't always agree with your perspectives and actions, I do value your contributions and learn from your sometimes differing perspectives. And BTW I don't want or expect to see eye-to-eye. It's these differing perspectives that are strength to our community and Democracy.

Unfortunately I will not be in town to "visit" with the Pleasanton Weekly staff, however after reading about the recent "Gaffes" by Jeb Bing, perhaps I'm not missing much. He has been arbitrary on his removal of postings and has offered little to no explanation for the removals. In addition he falsely accused Erlene DeMarcus and apparently did not bother to verify his accusations. A little blurb in the corner of the Pleasanton Weekly does not rectify the false impression that he has planted in the minds of some people. Time for Jeb to step aside and allow somebody to do some honest verifiable reporting.

Tri-Valley Republican women is holding their monthly dinner/speaker at that time. There is also a large annual women's member/guest event at Castlewood. 'Involved' women will be very busy that night. All three event times overlap.

Speaking of Demarcus, but this would make a fascinating in depth investigative reporting article. Demarcus was a consultant for James Tong regarding a project in Pleasanton regarding Vintage Hills shopping center that New Leaf is currently going in to (demolishing it and building high density housing) and interestingly, did not address the Pleasanton City Council on any matters at all related to ‘transportation.’ Demarcus operates under the Fictitous Business Name of The Demarcus Group, but did not define that name until quite recently -- August 14, 2008.
Also, she was present and sitting next to James Tong, Martin Inderbitzen, and paid consultant Tom Pico and architects in many of of the Oak Grove hearings at the Planning Commission and City Council in Pleasanton City Council Chambers between 2006 and 2007.
Also, she was present and sitting next to James Tong in the Promenade rezoning hearings in Dublin and photographed sitting next to James Tong in the City Council Chambers on September 20, 2011. If she has not worked for James Tong for 10 years, why is she sitting with James Tong with his team of representatives at all of these public hearings?
And let’s not forget her personally arranging for Jennifer Hosterman to use the Chabot Drive Charter Properties Suite 100 location for her mayoral campaign in October 2004 to put mailing labels of 15,000 pieces of Jennifer Hosterman mailers.
What a coincidence!!!
And let's not forget that in 2010 Erlene Demarcus who has obtained thousands of dollars from people with the last name of Tong and Lin is listed as Secretary where Mei-Chun Lin is President for the Boulder Creek Foundation in filings with the Federal government from 2010. If Demarcus claims no business relationship with Tong/Lin in 10 years, why is she listed on forms for a 2010 business filed with the Federal Government?
Mei-Chun Lin is associated with Chang Su-O Lin and Frederic Lin in the Fairway Family Community LP/Fairway Family Community Apts LP company and Dublin Ranch Senior Apartments projects in Dublin as well as being the head of Boulder Creek LLC.

For "Can't wait to see an investigative report"
Regardless of what you have implied, I fail to see where Jeb Bing has upheld any reporting standards for his obviously false statements and then the little blurb, saying that "I was mistaken". This is not the first time that Jeb Bing has stepped over the boundaries of factual reporting.
