Good job Jerry. Cardoza in the next district over got $500 million for a medical school (or at least 1/3 of that).

You managed to get CA-11 14 buses!

Once again Pleasanton's government poorly represents Pleasanton. What are the people along Owens and Santa Rita to do about getting to BART?

Was any study done to see what ridership will look like and what the return on investment (breake even year) will be?

Maybe they use those same buses and run them on weekends between downtown Pleasanton/Dublin on out to the wineries and charge people $5 per ride to help offset the cost?? Maybe the wineries pitch in a few dollars as well?? It would bring more value to the people, eliminate some drunk driving, and dump people off in the heart of the city to have dinner after an afternoon in the vineyards.
