Is a locally filled initiative newsworthy?

I find it interesting that a citizens initiative was filed in the City of Pleasanton last Tuesday called "Save Pleasanton's Hills & Housing Cap" but there has been no mention of this in the Pleasanton Weekly (online or printed). The initiative was filled by former City Councilwoman Kay Ayala and resident Karla Brown. It has been published in The Independent (last Thusday) as well as the Valley Times and the Tri-Valley Herald. In fact, both the Valley Times and the Tri-Valley Herald have already endorsed the initiative saying the "hill ordinance too long delayed." No matter what your opinion is on the initiative, I would think this is newsworthy and I am surprised that a paper that exclusively covers Pleasanton has not even mentioned it. The initiative can be found online at: Web Link
