Livermore Lions Club names Haggerty 'Citizen of Year'

Recognized for leadership in transportation policy

The Livermore Lions' Club has selected Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty as its Citizen of the Year for 2009.

Haggerty was recognized by the Lions for his leadership in transportation policy, mobilizing political support and drawing attention and funds to the chronically congested Tri-Valley I-580, I-680 and State Route 84 gateway highways into the Bay Area region. Currently, about $1 billion in improvements are planned or underway in the region.

Haggerty was also recognized for his contributions in support of establishing a local host-impact fee for a landfill operation in Livermore, which the city has designated for the construction of a regional performing arts center.

Other recipients of the Lions Club award have been Livermore Mayor Marshall Kamena, the late Supreme Court Justice Earl Warren and former First District Alameda County Supervisor Chester Stanley.

Haggerty is the First District Supervisor representing Pleasanton, Livermore, Fremont, part of Dublin and eastern unincorporated areas on the five-member Alameda County Board of Supervisors.

Citizen of the year? When I met him, in a retail establishment where he was my customer, he was a rude, arrogant SOB. Don't forget about the little people, you just might want them to vote for you someday!
