Tickets available for 'State of the City' luncheon in Pleasanton next Wednesday

Mayor Jerry Thorne will review accomplishments, issues and efforts ahead

Tickets are still available for the annual "State of the City" luncheon meeting next Wednesday at the DoubleTree Hotel in Pleasanton.

The luncheon, hosted by the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce, will feature Mayor Jerry Thorne as the keynote speaker.

Thorne was first elected to the City Council in a special election in June 2005, and then re-elected in November 2006 and again in 2010. He ran successfully for Mayor in 2012 and again in 2014, and is a candidate for re-election on Nov. 8.

Active in the League of California Cities, Thorne is expected to talk about the League's efforts to minimize state government's interference with local governance.

He will also review accomplishments during his terms on the council and as mayor, and about major issues and efforts ahead for Pleasanton.

A retired executive from Hewlett Packard, Thorne has lived in Pleasanton for more than 30 years with his wife Sandi.

Sponsors of the luncheon, to be held from noon to 1:15 p.m., are builder Barry Swenson, The Clorox Company, Heritage Bank of Commerce, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Safeway and Sensiba San Filippo.

The luncheon is open to the public at a cost of $30.

Those wishing to attend should make a reservation by email at or by calling the Chamber at (925) 846-5858.

Is the state of the city available some where we are not required to pay for it?

It should be made available to the public for free for those who do not want to eat. The presentation has been prepared by city staff so taxpayer's funds were used to create the presentation.
