Jennifer Hosterman professes to be an environmentalist. She rails agains global warming and champions the green agenda. Her behavior and her position on local issues runs counter to the environmental movement.
She supports the Oak Grove devepment: A develoment of building mega mansions in the pristine hills of Pleasanton. These homes, some of which can be larger than 10,000 square feat, are sure to leave a massive carbon footprint.
In a recent interview, Hosterman was asked about the City's response to a lawsuit from ABAG. The suit contends that Pleasanton has not met its requirement to provide low income housing. Hosterman suggested that low income housing should be provided in of all places, Brentwood! Apparently, Hosterman would like to turn low income people into super commuters. That would produce tons of carbon, pollution, and perpetuate the traffic mess on interstate 580.
Finally, she keeps a wild falcon as a pet. This is against a local ordinance but she recieved an exemption from the board. One wonders what would happen if we all decided to capture wild animals for our personal pleasure.
As one who supports as strong environmental agenda, I find Mayor Hosterman has demonstrated poor leadership as a champion regarding global warming, pollution, and suburban sprawl.
