Meet the Pleasanton candidates

Original post made on Oct 5, 2018

The mayoral seat also appears on the ballot, with Mayor Jerry Thorne as the only candidate listed after nobody filed to challenge him.

Find it interesting that candidate Streng, who appears to be a member of the Parks commission for 10 years fails to make any mention of Pleasanton's largest park, and most expensive public works project in its history...with estimates as high as $40,000,000 to complete.

That white elephant tucked in the Southeast hills known as the Callippe Weed patch...oops, I mean golf course.

Recent survey of Pleasanton residents have found that less than 10% of Pleasanton residents have been to the golf courx.

I support Julie Testa. I have worked with her for a number of years on a non-profit Board. She is a tireless worker and as a long-time Pleasanton resident has Pleasanton’s best interests at heart.

Testa is disorganized and likes to blame others. Ambition doesn't equal leadership.

I'll take some time to pick among the others.

Testa is a soup sandwich. She is all over the place. Ledoux brings a new perspective to our city council and his knowledge/experience as a policeman will definitely be a welcome addition. Public safety has always been a concern in our town and having Ledoux in city council will ensure public safety will remain a priority and resources will be allocated properly.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
