Answer: Just follow the money of course
It should be no surprise who in the Gang of Four is pulling the strings in it's campaign to oppose the Lund Ranch II referendum. This master of puppets is of course Greenbriar, the profit hungry developer who seeks to maximize its gain at any cost with complete disregard to what is in the best interests of the citizens of Pleasanton.
So what evidence is there of Greenbriar's influence and control over the other three members (puppets) of the Lund Ranch II Gang of Four.
Let's discuss each of these puppets:
(1) Ultra-pro-growth members of the city council receive political contributions from builders like Greenbriar which makes these council members beholden to their masters. Given Mayer Thorn, as a council member, was fully against the Oak Grove referendum and Measure PP, it is no surprise that he and his colleagues and cohorts are working to weaken the protection provisions in PP thereby paving the road (no pun intended) now and in the future for larger projects and more hillside homes to be built in an already too crowded Pleasanton.
(2) Light is finally shining brightly on who is holding the strings at a ˜grass roots" group calling itself "Protect Pleasanton Neighbors" as evidenced by Greenbriar's funding of email ads and facebook ads for this group. It's ironic to read that the list of "supporters" for this group surprisingly DOES NOT include Greenbriar; the arguably main financial supporter and backer of this group.
(3) The disgraced former council member and falsely self-proclaimed protector of PP issues a misleading ad against the referendum efforts funded, of course, by Greenbriar.
So regrettably, here we citizens sit, watching the puppet master and its collection of puppets continue to perform their sick play at the expense of Pleasanton. To them I say the following:
We are not stupid.
We see through your deceit.
We are hanging up on your incessant robocalls.
We are signing the petition.
God Bless Pleasanton
