Responding to your article on "Bio Business is Booming"..As a professional provider of services to the Life Science and biotech communities, I grow increasingly more excited about the interest in Pleasanton. More and more companies are looking at Pleasanton as the next big innovation hub, replicating some of the success seen across other East Bay cities like Berkeley, Emeryville, Fremont and others. Growing market sectors like alternative energy and sustainable, animal-free-foods will undoubtedly follow. Exciting times in the industrial evolution of Pleasanton.

Nice article to explain important work being done here in Pleasanton (addressing advances in health and pollution, etc). No growthers need to accept the need for these highly skilled employees to have houses or apartments here in town.
