Pleasanton election candidates emerge

Streng, Testa eye council seats with Narum; mayor, PUSD incumbents file too

The November elections are starting to take shape as candidates have begun to emerge for local Pleasanton seats, with the initial filing deadline approaching next week.

For Pleasanton City Council, incumbent Councilwoman Kathy Narum and challengers Joe Streng and Julie Testa have all taken out nomination papers and plan to submit their completed paperwork to the city clerk in the days ahead.

Meanwhile, Pleasanton Mayor Jerry Thorne has already filed his candidacy paperwork and is the only person to publicly declare their intent to run for the mayoral post.

The same is the case for Pleasanton Unified School District's Board of Trustees, where only incumbents Joan Laursen and Mark Miller have entered the race so far.

The deadline to file candidacy paperwork to qualify for the general election is Aug. 10, although the date is extended by five days in any election where an incumbent doesn't file -- which is expected to be the situation for City Council, with Councilman Arne Olson announcing he won't seek a second term.

With Olson bowing out of a re-election bid, the council is guaranteed to see at least one new member after the Nov. 6 election.

Narum revealed more than two months ago that she would pursue a second term this fall. It would mark the final term for the councilwoman under the city's term limits.

She has served on the City Council since voters picked her in a special mail-only election in May 2013 to fill the council seat left vacant when voters elevated Thorne to mayor. She was re-elected to a full four-year term in November 2014.

In the past several days, Streng and Testa also publicly announced their intent to seek one of the two council positions up for grabs. They each have pulled nomination forms but have not yet filed the documents, according to city clerk Karen Diaz.

A longtime Pleasanton resident who graduated from Amador Valley High School as a teenager, Streng served as a regular member on the Parks and Recreation Commission from 2010 until earlier this year, in addition to one year earlier as an alternate member. Among his favorite projects he cited Bernal Community Park, Cubby's Dog Park and the 2017 update to the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan.

Streng said his three priorities as a councilman would be fiscal responsibility and oversight, carefully planned development and maintaining Pleasanton's quality of life.

"Moving forward, our city faces issues that will require cooperation and leadership," he said in a campaign statement. "We've taken steps to prepare for our pension obligations, but more needs to be done. Managing traffic around and through Pleasanton continues to require a regional approach to develop long-term solutions, as well as local action to keep our streets safe for cyclists and pedestrians."

"Our city is one of many across California that needs to deliver housing solutions to keep up with a growing need. I'm ready to tackle these and other matters head on," he added.

A longtime community advocate with focuses on school overcrowding and slow growth, Testa is a familiar face in council and school board audiences, among other public meetings. She also has city service experience with 11 years previously on the Human Services Commission.

"The threat to the quality of life that Pleasanton residents value has never been greater," Testa told the Weekly.

"Campaign season is an important opportunity to inform the community regarding issues of concern. I want to help our community understand the threat that exists with future high-density development and the impacts it will have on traffic and our overcrowded schools," she added.

"I will let residents know there is a reason to be concerned that the discussion of injecting recycled sewer water into our drinking water is back. I want residents to know that the risks of contamination that gave Pleasanton voters reason to reject Measure J in 2000 still exist," Testa said.

This is the second straight election year Testa has sought city office. She lost her bid to unseat Thorne in a two-candidate mayoral race in November 2016.

This time around, Thorne is seeking his fourth and final two-year term as mayor. Thus far, no other potential candidate has pulled papers to challenge Thorne as of Tuesday afternoon, according to Diaz.

On the school board side, two seats are up for election and both incumbents have filed for re-election.

Laursen has sat on the board since first being elected in November 2010, and most recently served as board president in 2016-17. She is a board representative for the Tri-Valley Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) and the Regional Occupational Programs Joint Powers Board.

Miller, the current board president, is seeking a second consecutive four-year term this fall. He is a representative to the City of Pleasanton Liaison Committee and the PUSD Audit Committee.

The two announced their intents to run for re-election in a joint statement issued in April, months before the filing period opened in July.

Prospective candidates for mayor and school board have until Aug. 10 at 5 p.m. to file candidacy papers. If Olson follows through on not seeking re-election, the council deadline will be extended to Aug. 15 at 5 p.m.

Candidacy papers for city positions must be filed with the City Clerk's Office; contact Diaz at 931-5027. For school board, candidacy documents must be submitted to the Alameda County Registrar of Voters' Office in Oakland; call 510-272-6973.

Does Joe Streng approve of a Costco build in Pleasanton?

Does Julie Testa approve of a Costco build in Pleasanton?

What I want is a yes or no answer.

I do not want a Swalwell pontificate type of answer to my question.

Was Testa the one who couldn't get organized to file the proper election forms on time, then sued the city (and lost) for her own incompetence because they enforced the rules?

Clear sign someone is not fit to serve.

Bill, as I recall, the judge indicated the City should either have accepted an electronic version or offered to print out the statement from an email. Unfortunately, by the time the judge heard the issue, it was too late to compel the County to include the candidate's statement.

I'm sure you must be right though . . . it's not like any of our elected officials have ever made an innocent mistake . . . say, something like not knowing their investments included stock in Costco when they were negotiating with that company.

Bill:
Julie Testa stepped up to give voters a choice when no one else would run against the current mayor. Unfortunately, the city clerk made a series of errors that required asking the court for remedy. The judge decided that Julie was in compliance and would have ordered the statement printed, but the tight timeline did not allow catching the printing of the county’s ballots in time. And, even without a candidate statement, nearly 12,000 Pleasanton voters were glad there was an alternative candidate for mayor, which made Julie’s point that voters were not happy with the direction of the city council.

I recall Testa met the legal deadline and she would have had a candidate statement on the ballot if the city clerk had not made a mistake. The incompetence was with the city clerk. I’m glad a strong candidate, like Testa, is running.

Let's see ... Julie Testa was not organized enough to get her paperwork submitted to the city on time, so she sues the city. Then the lawsuit itself was thrown out ... because the lawsuit was filed too late. And the candidate statement that she was suing the city for so she could have it published in the voter pamphlet violated the election code - so would not have been published anyways. I'd rather vote for someone who has demonstrated the ability to get things accomplished without being so contentious and unorganized.

Charles. Exactly.

It's not the mistake. It's the reaction to the mistake.

If someone refuses to take responsibility for a mistake of their own making and then blames others, they shouldn't be taking responsibility for the City of Pleasanton. She sounds like a train wreck.

Bill and Charles, The judge indicated Testa was in substantial compliance and the city should have taken the electronic file. All the paperwork was there and available to the person taking the filing. Contact Matt Morrison; he was there and knows how the city failed and what the judge said. Try facts instead of hearsay.

Let’s be honest, Bill and Charles are the same person from the campaign team of one of the other candidates. It’s unfortunate that they decided to start off with a smear campaign directed at one of the candidates instead of focusing on what is actually important here which is the position of each candidate. I’ve lived here my whole life and I want to know about where each candidate stands with respect to the future of our town.

Bill & Charles....

Look at what I post under "false News"

You both are totally un-informed, and people like you should be banned from voting.

If you followed the true facts, you would know that Testa did in fact WIN in court against the city.

You should offer an apology.

Feel free to contact the City Attorney for verification of the Judges' order.

As a side note Bill & Charles...I did not see either of you step up to the plate...it appears you're both content to stay in the stands and hurl false news & alternative facts.

I'm wishing Ms. Testa good luck, and hope for a successful campaign.

VOTE TESTA!!

I had an unfortunate encounter with candidate Streng on an issue regarding a heritage tree. He was serving as chairperson of an appeals hearing regarding removal of the tree which had caused significant damage (in excess of $12K) to my property (sewer line replacement, driveway lifting, etc.). He really was not very respectful - hurried through the hearing - I suspected the appeals board had already made their decision before hearing public comments. My neighbors were very supportive of my quest, took the time to show up to the hearing, but Mr. Streng - well he cut me off early in my presentation at the hearing (I was told by the city landscape coordinator that he didn't realize I was the petitioner). I was also told afterward that he needed to be somewhere else, and this hearing was delaying him - the decision was made to deny the request 15 minutes after the public comment was opened. Frankly, the whole thing was a joke, and a waste of my, and my neighbors' time. This wasn't a "hearing". Pleasanton residents need an advocate in the city council - someone who will put themselves, and their schedule, aside to listen, and just be respectful, even if there's a difference of opinion. I still have the tree, and I'm over that issue, but I knew his name was familiar when I read this article.

I attended a coffee which a neighbor hosted for Ms Testa when she previously ran for mayor. I thought she was very unprepared and could not answer questions in a way that showed that she understood city-wide issues. [Removed because it couldn't be verified.]
For me to consider her as a candidate worthy of my vote, she will have to show a real understanding of issues and processes as well as her ability to build consensus for solutions. Im weary of negativity.

Substantial compliance is not compliance.

Tim Hunt's wife used to have a banner in her classroom that said, "Even if you swim 9/10's of the way across the river, you still drown."

If someone screws up, loses, and blames others, you can vote for them.

I believe they are part of the problem. No on Testa.

Give me a candidate who takes their job as being a representative of the community seriously - one who listens to people in the community, and is flexible, rather than someone who already knows how they are going to vote on any given issue, despite any new facts. I honestly don't personally know any of the information being discussed regarding Ms. Testa, or if she is "organized". However, if it's true that there are people commenting here who are trying to skew the facts to fit their narrative, then I say these people are not friends of the Pleasanton community - they don't care if the person elected to the city council actually listens to anyone - they only care if they are like-minded. And therefore, I would be wary of whomever they support.

I would like to see candidates who are positive and inclusive - who will listen to all community members and seek information from all sides. We live in a great community and I have lived here for over 20 years. Based on the article above, I like the message that Joe Streng has - will definitely take time to learn more about him, as well as the other 2 candidates for city council. I’m glad Jerry Thorne is running again too - he’s done a great job. And kudos to those running for school board reelection. Grateful for those who are willing to serve in our community. Let’s focus on what makes our city great!!!

Bill, You are skipping that the city was held in error. Maybe you swim nine tenths and stand up to wade ashore? Ifyou have all the information and the error is the city’s, you would just walk away? I don’t think so.

If you are for the other candidates, then say so and why.

Winston, it’s been two years and Testa has continued her involvement. I would say compromise is a good result after all the harder questions have been asked and answered.

Good comeback Kathleen. Testa swam 9/10th the way, stood up and walked the rest of the way to shore to deliver her candidate statement, but the city clerk said, "Sorry, the rules say you need to swim all the way."

I guess in Bill's perfect rule following world, he would give speeding tickets to any driver who goes even 1 MPH over the 25 MPH residential street speed limit. It is, after all, the law and you certainly cannot apply any common sense whatsoever when it comes to interpreting laws.

Sounds to me like the city clerk at minimum lacked common sense and at worst, may have been politically motivated. Is the city clerk an appointed position?

Time to get to the real issues. Judicial ruling is clear in support of Testa and is part of the public record.

I appreciate Julie Testa as she is aa fighter for protecting our quality of life. She does not just talk the talk, she walks the walk. For example, she is the only candidate who has spent significant hours in Sacramento this year fighting to protect our local control and fight bills that reduce our control. And she has done this with the full support of the City, leveraging the messages the city created.
She is also the only new candidate running for Council who regularly shows up at the Downtown Task Force meetings and provides input to the team. In contrast, have not seen Joe Streng be involved with these critical meetings to help improve Pleasanton.

I have known Joe Streng for many years, and he has worked tirelessly on improving our community while serving on the Bike Pedestrian & Trails committee and the Parks and Rec Commission over the past 12 years. He is positive, enthusiastic and passionate about Pleasanton. His energy and his positive, forward-thinking and inclusive attitude is what we need to help maintain our quality of life here in Pleasanton. My vote is for Joe!

We have 4 members of this council that are firmly backed by the pro-developer/builder Pleasanton's Chamber of Commerce now. My neighbor Herb Ritter (also ran for council 2 years ago), will be the 2019 Pleasanton Chamber's Chairman, and he hosted Joe Streng's campaign kick off party! Do I need to say more?

We need diverse opinions and independent thinkers, not a "me too" vote from mega-developers when we have 4 already! Based on this, I'm voting for an independent thinker - Julie Testa.

An AT&T tower was approved near Quarry Lane years ago. What is the status of that and others around town?

My first encounter with Julie Testa was a few years ago. After a neighborhood meeting that the City held regarding the Eastside Specific Plan, After the meeting, Julie was in the parking lot screaming at Brian Dolan (at that time he was the Development Director). She was shouting at him, something about school issues, etc. Very disrespectful and made herself look foolish. Yeah...thats exactly what kind of person we need for Mayor.

@ LOU
@ BUC

I remember that meeting at Donlon. It was an information/community outreach regarding the East Side Specific Plan. The task force had just concluded its work, and a preliminary E.I.R. was published.
The meeting was “hosted” by Herb Ritter and Adam Weinstein. Well over 200 people attended. Dozens approached the microphone to ask questions and offer comments.

It was also the first time I heard Julie Testa speak publicly. From my recollection, she was advocating for a new school to be built. I believe her stating that it was irresponsible to move forward with a development of 1000+ homes without a new school.

I stayed until the very end. Only a few dozen people remained in the audience, as the meeting lasted into the wee hours of the morning.

No doubt it was a very hostile crowd that night.

The crowd was very angry, and made their feelings known. (But no riots, or inappropriate behavior; just raised voices).

If you were in fact at that meeting, I am sure you will remember Brian Dolan addressing this hostile crowd.
He stated that he felt that he was under attack, and really did not appreciate it. This comment was directed to everyone.

The only message that I would have for Assistant City Manager Dolan is “if it is too hot, leave the kitchen”. Mr. Dolan is still a member of the City staff, and I suspect he can “take the heat”.

As for the encounter you reference in the parking lot, I question whether it happened.

After the meeting concluded, Patrick Costanzo and his associate (representing the interests of Kiewit) and I had a lengthy conversation in that parking lot. Most people who participated in the meeting had already departed. In fact, we said good bye to many of the city staff as they walked to their cars.

I do not recollect any raised voices or any type of confrontation of any kind.

If your goal is to discredit Julie Testa and run a “smear campaign”, I would like to remind you that Pleasanton’s tag-line is “community of character”. Something that the current Mayor reminds everyone during discussion of contentious issues, and that everyone’s opinion is respected.

Knowing that Adam recorded every public meeting, I would suggest you listen to a copy of his recording to re-fresh your memories.

John aka False News & Alternative facts.
Perhaps it is you who are confused. The meeting I attended was on April 23, 2015 at Donlon. The meeting did run late into the night, but hardly into "the wee hours of the morning". I was one of the very last to leave and that is when I observed Ms. Testa's abhorrent and embarrassing behavior.

Sorry to tell you, but I am not dreaming or making things up. In fact, I still have a copy of an email sent to Brian Dolan and Staff that I was copied on from another attendee, thanking them for their commitment and apologizing on behalf of the community for Julie Testa's behavior afterward. Gee, maybe I am dreaming up Brian's thank you email as well.

Sorry to say, but your candidate needs to learn self control and needs to learn basic manners before she can rise to a position of leadership. Thats not a smear, that is simply the truth.

Perhaps you should follow your own advice and research the issues more carefully before putting your own spin on facts.

Sometimes one needs to raise their voice to make a point.

It's called "passion"

Kathleen-
That would be INCORRECT. Unbelievable - you should be ashamed of yourself.

I have no idea who Lou Stuhle is and, in fact did not make the "name" connection until you pointed it out a few days ago in another post - gross.

So, your high brow comment and lecture to "them" in your post would also apply to "False News"?

I have always respected your viewpoints with regard to school; perhaps you should stick with things you know best.

Lastly, even though I gave the exact date of Testa's temper tantrum, both you and "False News" aka "John" thats not good enough for you to believe that she may not be able to control her temper. Or should I say control her "passion" for an issue as "John" prefers that term. Regardless, anyone who cannot control themselves and resorts to screaming face to face to city staff should not serve (in my opinion).

@ Buc

No need to put my name in quotes, as John is my real name.

I am not afraid to make my feelings known, and I personally do not feel morally right hiding behind the cloak of anonymity.

I'd like to make 3 points which I'd like you (and others) to consider with an open mind:

1) First, I will agree with you that Julie Testa may not be the most polished speaker, or prepared when she addresses the City Council, PUSD Board &/or staff. Some would even say she has sharp elbows. She always seems to run out of time at the podium, and rarely is able to finish all her thoughts before the red light illuminates. As Mayor Thorne, often states, it takes a lot of courage to stand at that podium. And everyone who addresses the City from that podium will be respected. Regardless of whether you agree or dis-agree with Mrs. Testa's positions, one cannot deny her of the fact that she is in fact courageous, frequently standing at that podium.

2) It’s not how it’s said, but what is said. One should not concerned about the delivery of the message, but what the content of the message is. You’re biggest complaint seems to be that Mrs. Testa yelled at Asst. City Manager Dolan. What I want to know is what the topic of the disagreement was about or what point Mrs. Testa was trying to make with Mr. Dolan.

3) I’ve seen Mrs. Testa as an active community member. I’ve seen her many times at City Council Meetings, Zone 7 meetings, Planning commission meetings, PUSD Board meetings, scoping sessions, workshops, as well as many minor meetings such as the monthly PUSD-City liaison meeting. Standing by my observation made in item 1, I’ve never seen her exhibit ANY inappropriate behavior (in my opinion).
