Campaign Signs Around Town, posted by Ben, a resident of the Kottinger Ranch neighborhood, on Sep 22, 2012 at 10:55 am
Karla Brown, a candidate for Pleasanton City Council, has placed a large campaign sign on the back of a truck on Hearst Drive. This truck with sign has been parked in the same spot since last Sunday, Sept.16. The law in Pleasanton is that a vehicle cannot be parked on the street in the same spot for more than 72 hours. A call to have this truck moved has gone unanswered. Now my questions are:1. Does this candidate,before being elected, already think she is above the law? 2. Does this candidate running for a city office, not know the laws of the town she hopes to represent?

Cook-Kalio has always placed her signs on City property and Streets through-out Pleasanton. She knows better and knows the rules. She obviously doesn't care about rules. Erlene DeMarcus also knows the rules etc.. She places large 8x4 signs on City property. Last weekend, I noticed some of those Xlarge signs leaning up against the wall on the side of Scott Walsh's house. Took a picture. A retired firefighter. I was not going to say anything, but since Ben brought up the sign issue - I decided to. Candidates need to take responsibility for their campaigns and actions!

I'd like to add to Ben's list. #3-As President of the Kottinger Ranch HOA, shouldn't Ms. Brown know the HOA rules as it pertains to abandoned vehicles? As a candidate for local office Ms. Brown is giving the impression that rules don't apply to her. Not a good quality for a local leader!

Why can't Karla pollute just like the other candidates? It's like insisting that Walmart pay taxes for moving into Pleasanton when so many other big firms don't pay taxes either. I mean, c'mon, get off it!
Let's get back on track, everyone! Aren't we supposed to be clamoring for pension reform? Too many rich state workers and we don't have enough revenues to pay for their exorbitant salaries, flat-screen tv's, and iPads.

Ben, get your facts straight. Ruby Hill is not in Livermore. If you had been paying attention instead of passing falsehoods, you would know that the City of Pleasanton annexed the Ruby Hill property into Pleasanton. It was part of a land deal with Alameda County. Had Pleasanton not annexed the property, then the City would have had to provide Police and Fire Protection services, while not being able to collect on the property taxes. It is not in Livermore and never has been. Ruby Hill residents live with-in Pleasanton City limits. Just like you didn't notice that the truck with Karla's sign has moved around.
