Original post made on Oct 14, 2008

Parks and Recreation Commissioner Jerry Pentin decided to run for one of two open seats on the City Council to put his experience and knowledge of city processes to work and after some "gentle nudging" from supporters. Citing his enthusiasm for the city he's called home for the past 17 years, he has identified areas of focus were he to be elected, the first being traffic circulation, making Pleasanton a better regional partner.

Jerry seems like a nice guy, but he should lose the moustache.

Jerry is a great candidate. We really do need some new blood on the council. Some of the candidates have been around to long and have lost sight of the big picture.

McGovern and Sullivan have earned my vote.

If I'm not mistaken Hosterman has been on council the longest and I would sure agree that it is time for her to go!

I see Jerry as a small business owner in Pleasanton bringing a unique perspective to our Council. He has to understand about making payroll, trying to get things approved in this city, and most important that time is money, something that seems to be lost with some of our Council. Plus he has a long record of community service in Pleasanton. He has my support, the only question is who to give my second vote to?

I feel your pain--ya got Sullivan who wants to add to the drug problem in Pleasanton by considering a Marijuana dispesary and McGovern, self proclaimed ridge protector. Funny how she lives on the Pleasanton Ridge--but that don't count.... AND, oh yeah, they both taking their "Marching Orders" from Kay, a rude and nasty person when you don't agree with her. A real nightmare this is.....
