Original post made on Dec 20, 2007

The myriad of projects Jill Buck is involved with speaks volumes about her--literally. She has a laundry list of accomplishments that would make anyone's jaw drop.

A wonderful selection by the PW.

In my opinion, both Jill Buck and Pat Belding have contributed more to the City of Pleasanton as "ordinary" citizens than any the elected officials have in the last decade. They have, by their actions, paid more than lip service to the concept of "Community of Character." They have demonstrated higher ethics than most of our elected officials.

I would encourage Jill Buck to run for the position of Mayor or City Council of Pleasanton to change the culture of Pleasanton government.

Jill Buck is a very compelling figure. She stirred up a lot of excitement when she ran for the California State Assembly. The problem for Ms. Buck is she chose the wrong party to run under.
If she had run as a Democrat with all of her bi-partisan and enviromental experience she might have won the election, and she would have recieved more Democrat endorsements from the overwhelmingly democratic district she chose to run in.

Message to Jill... Run for the Pleasanton city council and build a base of support then run for a bigger job. Also consider changing parties. Not that the GOP does not want you but environmentalism sells better to Democrats.
