Supporters of re-electing Pleasanton City Councilman Jerry Pentin to a second term of office on Nov. 8 will hold a campaign fundraiser breakfast from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Thursday at the Alameda County Fairgrounds' Palm Pavilion.
Pentin, who was first elected to the council four years ago, will talk about the challenges and tough decisions he faced during his first term and the opportunities he sees in the coming years.
"I believe I have served the city the best I can," Pentin said. "I've done my homework, studied the issues, met with both sides of many items before the council and then voted for what is best for all residents in Pleasanton. And I'll keep it up for the next four years."
A 25-year resident of Pleasanton, Pentin and his wife Josine have a daughter Joi, who is a graduate of Amador Valley High School and UC Berkeley and now works in Silicon Valley.
Pentin served in the Marines from 1975 to 1980. He owns and operates Spring Street Studios, a media production company in Pleasanton.
Suggested contributions for the Thursday breakfast and campaign fundraiser are $100 and $150 with a guest.
