To Planning Commissioner Justin Brown,

Thank you so much for speaking up as a father of three in support of the Youth Commission's recommendations for sales restrictions of flavored tobacco products and electronic smoking devices.

Livermore and Dublin recently passed strong Tobacco Retail Ordinances to keep these products out of our city, and we don't want Pleasanton to be the destination of choice for kids in the Tri-Valley to purchase them.

These ordinances have been very effective in bringing down youth access to these products, but only if they are strong and comprehensive. We hope Pleasanton City Council will do everything it can to pass the strongest ordinance it can and give all the kids of the Tri-Valley a chance to grow up tobacco-free.

Kristie Wang
