Valley Times,Tri-Valley Herald and Independent all Endorse No on D
Original post made by long time resident, Birdland, on May 27, 2010
Today the Tri-valley Herald and the Valley Times also gave a big endorsement for No on D at Web Link .
They had a great opening:
FOR THE second time in as many years, Pleasanton voters are being asked to weigh in at the ballot box because their City Council has been deaf to their concerns about hillside development.
And ends with:
It should have never come to this. If city officials had complied with their promise more than 10 years ago to develop a hillside ordinance, the Lins' 2003 proposal and the subsequent compromise would have been drafted to comply with the rules. This fight could have been avoided. But that would have required the City Council to listen to residents' concerns rather than overriding them.
