Editorial: Happy campaigning is over? So are we

Original post made on Nov 6, 2020

Kind words and a bit of encouragement go a long way in these extremely difficult times. Let's remember that as these newly elected or re-elected officials step up to lead. And be good to one another.

Due to a loss in the family Randy Brown is out of town so he asked me to speak on his behalf. He simply wants to say thank you to the Pleasanton Weekly and staff for being an invaluable asset to the community, especially during this challenging election season. He is grateful for the service you provide to Pleasanton day in and day out and wants you to know he is thankful for all you do to provide fair and unbiased information to our community.

Laura Brooks, Campaign Manager for Randy Brown for City Council 2020

Tucker Carlson had some really interesting comments on our election process that actually pertain to PW and media at large. Did you watch? [Portion removed due to promoting a website]

"Combined, our editorial staff has decades of experience and this local election, by far, was one of the ugliest in terms of dirty tactics, misinformation,..."

I agree.

The editorial staff characterized Glazer and Bauer-Kahan's efforts to further erode the 2nd Amendment in this state (what is left of it) as a "legislative success" and/or an "accomplishment". Neither is the case. Firearms do not cause violence and criminals will not care about/comply with legal firearms purchase regulations/transfer requirements.

11/09/2020 Yogi Berra said it. "It ain't over till the fat lady sings."

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts on the other hand, puts it this way:

"There has been a revolution against red state America, not an election.

"There are many credible reports of organized vote fraud" ......... "The only question is whether the Republican establishment will support challenging the documented fraud or whether Trump will be pressured to concede in order to protect the undeserved reputation of American Democracy."

Protecting the Republic is what's at stake. It ain't over till the fat lady sings.

Thank you to the PW for being such a vital asset to Pleasanton. I trust you to provide thorough and objective reporting, presenting all sides of often difficult issues. We are lucky to have you.

I also appreciate your standing up to trolling and the spread of misinformation and how you handle concerns in a fair and professional way. A shout out to the posters who use their real name. No matter your opinion, I always respect you for speaking out as that takes guts and so few do it.

I encourage all who have concerns to write or attend our Planning Commission or City Council meetings. We need to know your concerns so we can make things better. Thank you.

Unless your CDL has been scanned, and your photo matches your CDL -- we're all blogging anonymously. People use fake names all the time, pretending to be authentic.

And, yes -- I'm happy the campaigning is over.

Oh Rich:

If wishes were horses then beggars would ride,

If turnips were swords I’d have one by my side.

If ‘ifs’ and ‘ands’ were chances and votes,

You boy mighta won, but his odds are RE-MOTE!

Here's a straw - hang onto it!
