Dublin Needs a pause on growth, especially slow down on housing projects. Dublin does not have the infrastructure needed to support that high growth, especially schools. Jing and Bobby are the city council Dublin residents need. Both are champions for the interests of Dublin residents, not special interest groups. Dubliners First!

Who appointed the Pleasanton Weekly the newspaper for the Tri-Valley? he PLEASANTON Weekly doesn't cover issues in Dublin and Livermore. How can you offer endorsements into our surrounding cities criticizing issues and residents there? This paper is a PLEASANTON local paper whose distribution is only in Pleasanton. I find it incredible that you would throw stones at other communities. For what it is worth - butt out or cover those towns for a full year to learn the issues from the people that live in those towns before offering your opinion based on very limited information. A little information can be dangerous, as well as only listening to a supply of information from the incumbents.

We have been covering the communities surrounding Pleasanton for several years. More importantly, Pleasanton is part of the Tri-Valley, and what happens in Livermore, Dublin, San Ramon and Danville significantly affects Pleasanton.

It would be irresponsible and foolish to ignore these elections and ballot measures.
