PW, you are leaving out some important facts. Not only did Erlene DeMarcus accept campaign contributions from a developer (developers?), she is a PAID CONSULTANT for the Lin family, the Hong Kong land barons that are a perpetual pain-in-the-a** for Pleasanton. Thank goodness we won't have this developer's shill on the Council and we won't have the union's shill Cook-Kallio as Mayor. Unfortunately, we still have Cook-Kallio on the Council.
