LettersFocus on quality of life
Pleasanton recently achieved noteworthy status -- 63rd among all U.S. cities -- on Money Magazine's Best Places to Live list. This is an achievement to make everyone in Pleasanton proud. As a small business owner operating an Allstate Insurance agency here, I also see this as a challenge to us all to continue making our city one of the greatest communities in America for years to come.
Our climate, property values and commitment to education stand out as reasons why Pleasanton is noteworthy nationwide.
It is other characteristics like our nature trails and park lands, and our robust art, cultural and entertainment choices that help further establish Pleasanton as an extraordinary place to live.
Let's continue to display a genuine interest in our neighbors' well-being. Let's keep our sidewalks and streets safe for pedestrians and bicyclists and -- better still -- even increase our personal use of foot- and pedal-power. And let's focus on the quality of life matters that help attract and keep successful businesses and services in our area for all our benefit.
In these ways and others, Pleasanton will maintain and even grow its reputation as being among the best places in America.
