I finally mailed in my voter packet yesterday. Frankly I struggled due to the lack of a strong candidate. They all seem pleasant, but none of them appear to be leaders, with the ability to work with others.

I certainly hope that voters didn't vote in another left wing loon to reconstitute The Three Stooges.

Another Stooge would be better than party of no, or Tea party Miller.

Sorry, Joey,

If you just mailed your ballot in yesterday it probably won't be counted. They don't expect any ballots mailed after the 2nd to be valid in this election. At least, that's what the City Clerk's office told me.

I just brought mine, my husbands an our just turned 18 year old sons (his very first election and even though a mail in only election he was so excited to have the opportunity to vote!) down to 123 Main St. and the City Clerks office. They will be accepting ballots until 5:00pm this afternoon and if you haven't voted yet I encourage every resident of Pleasanton to make their voice heard and vote!

In our opinion David Miller is the logical choice, but that means he will probably loose in this town of conflicted needs and confused ideals.
