In today's Independent, Bill Rasnick's letter to the editor got published expressing his opinion on the Oak Grove lawsuit. Bill's whole argument hinges on one main point he wrote, "To comply with his ruling each signature gatherer would have had to carry over 14 pounds of documents while trying to collect signatures."
Bill, please go read the judge's ruling. He didn't say each signature gatherer would have had to carry over 14 pounds of documents. He explicitly addressed that issue.
BTW, I'm sorry but I just don't think the City and the Council, which is elected by a MAJORITY, should be "defending the will" of a minority group (only 14% of Pleasanton voters) with a SELF-APPOINTED leader.
