"The extension of Stoneridge Drive, long advocated by Dublin, Livermore, Alameda County and Caltrans puts Pleasanton back on the "good neighbor" list and likely to gain their needed support to press forward on widening Highway 84 over Pigeon Pass to connect commuters between I-580 and I-680. This, more than any other traffic plan, is expected to significantly decrease cut-through traffic on Pleasanton streets."
Misguided actions by several Councilors and Planning Commissioners will no doubt put the SR84 widening at risk. They don't have Pleasanton's best interest in mind.

Good editorial. I totally agree with it. Let us go ahead with something positive in these dark days for the country,state and Pleasanton.

Politicians get money. Politicians flip flop. They morph into becoming as our esteemed mayor has referred to "Haggerty's lapdog."
From Mayor Jen's blog in 2006 Web Link
"Second, Supervisor Haggerty endorsed Councilmember Brozosky. Am I worried? Not in the least. But, their relationship goes further - while I have gone to bat for the people of Pleasanton and fought the County on numerous issues - Staples Ranch, the Stoneridge Drive Extension, the ACE Train station, putting up a fence in Happy Valley, etc., Supervisor Haggerty, even though he was elected to represent the people of Pleasanton, has failed miserably to do so, and Councilmember Brozosky is apparently his new lapdog with regard to all of those issues."
I can't wait until a mayor is elected again that represents the people of Pleasanton.
