Arne was an outstanding city council member. He thoroughly studied each issue brought to his attention. He is fair and balanced. We will miss him.

Although Mr. Olson did not serve on City Council during my tenure as Finance Director (he served on Planning Commission) I regarded him as an influential thought leader among appointed and elected officials and someone who always prioritized Pleasanton’s fiscal health and sustainability in his recommendations and decisions.
