The expected occurred at the special council meeting regarding the Oak Grove appeal. Matt Campbell was the only one of the council to flip his position on the original Oak Grove decision. Since on the council, he has established himself as someone who always tries to be on both sides of any issue. When the going gets rough, he accomplishes this by flip flopping. Since he cannot vote half for an issue, he makes up for it by voting one way and then the other way the next time. Now I am for Oak Grove. Now I am not, but instead for the "bigger issue" of protecting referendum rights by voting to put taxpayer's money out to pay for the Ayala faction's decision to appeal a judge's decision, which by all reasonable estimates is not likely to go anywhere legally.
What happened to the rest of us who support Oak Grove and all of those who put years of effort in to come up with the present plan? Let the legislature fix any problems with state election law, Mr. Campbell. How do we in Pleasanton benefit from this appeal?
Mr. Campbell appears to be ill-suited in his official role as a councilman and it would be better to dump him at the next election and get someone with backbone to represent the general population of Pleasanton. That's what we vote them in office for, not to flip flop to please minorities.
