Dublin, Pleasanton bonding in community of character efforts

by Jeb Bing

With Pleasanton and Dublin mutually bound in congressional, regional transportation and local sports, civic and municipal issues, it's good that the two communities are also together when it comes to character traits. Since 2005, Pleasanton has embraced its Community of Character coalition with a mission of creating a culture built on values, goodwill and community-accepted traits of honesty, self respect, compassion, self-discipline and responsibility. Now Dublin has its "Integrity in Action," a character-based awareness campaign that was launched last Monday by city, school, business and student leaders. Former Mayor Janet Lockhart serves as president of the new organization, which now has a 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. Lockhart is also executive director of the Dublin Partners in Education organization, which is also supporting the new Integrity in Action campaign.
