Last week the Pleasanton City Council approved lending PUSD 1.2 million via a revolving loan.
I can't speak to the soundness of this action - sounds an awful lot like using one credit card to pay the interest payment on another, but certainly the City Council's generosity is appreciated!
I think PUSD should return that generosity by making an effort to use Pleasanton businesses as much as possible for any PUSD purchases.
In reviewing the PUSD vendor history report, I began checking the vendors listed, and a number of them offer services that are also offered by Pleasanton businesses.
On a number of occasions, the community has been asked to support Pleasanton businesses and I agree with this sentiment and hope PUSD will as well.
