List of those opposed to Prop 98...impressive names

Original post made by Sharon - renter, Vineyard Avenue, on May 24, 2008

The Pleasanton Weekly is NOT listed pro or con. They attended the meeting held in our park clubhouse and the city council meeting. To date, the only article was in the real esetate section,May16th edition. It stated that the CA Realtor Assn was asking realtors to vote the opposite of our position. 'Nuff said about the probable P'ton Weekly stand.

TO ABNER, a resident of the Canyon Oaks neighborhood***
Yes there is the 1st Amendment...Freedom of Speech. When one becomes an adult, we should have learned by then to be respectful of others. It takes a combination of the two things to be a grown-up and garner respect for yourself from others.
You have a long way to go. And your comment is in no way relative to my topic.
I am asking the Editor: please remove this comment. It is rude and disrespectful of your readers. If you need to remove the entire topic that is ok as I can re-post.
Thanks you
