Interesting statement for Dianne Feinstein regarding the mis-use of her words by the Save Pleasanton's Hills group. It's amazing that a US Senator would have the time to keep an eye out for grassroots groups improperly quoting her. Just another example of exploiting the initiative process and misleading voters. Haven't we had enough of the lying from the Bush administration that we have to deal with it in our local politics?

Actually the developer people are pretty lame for saying this. The ad that they are referring to had a statement from Diane Feinstein talking about the dangers of placing homes in a high fire area and then the ad said they agreed with Senator Feinstein. I don't know how anybody could read the ad and think that Senator Feinstein had any opinion on our development. I am sure the Cheryl Cook-Kallio's campaign manager, who is an active person in the Democratic party and a member of the Democrat Central Committee arranged for this. This same person has also been hired by Jennifer Hosterman as her PR person (guess we are in big time politics in Pleasanton when the mayor hires a PR person).

The point is that Senator Feinstein wrote a letter to the mayor and stated that she had no official position on the Oak Grove development.
"I don't know how anybody could read the ad and think that Senator Feinstein had any opinion on our development."
Well, Senator Feinstein was able to read the ad and come to this conclusion.
