The legacy of a City Council

The election Tuesday of a new mayor and two new members of the City Council also marks the end of the most productive, possibly one of the best councils ever in recent memory. With four on the council, including Mayor Jennifer Hosterman, who have served together since 2004 with Cheryl Cook-Kallio joining the team in 2006, it may be the council that has had unprecedented unity. Council members, even mayors, come and go, more frequently today in the era of term limits. This outgoing council, including Hosterman, Cook-Kallio, mayor-elect Jerry Thorne and now termed-out members Cindy McGovern and Matt Sullivan, is leaving a legacy of fiscal prudence, capital improvements and controlled growth that will continue to shape Pleasanton for years to come.
