Make no mistake, Pamela Price is part of the "Rogue Prosecutor" movement - the same ilk as Chesa Boudin, George Gascon and Alvin Bragg. All of these folks have been recalled or are facing recalls or public backlash because their anti-victim, pro-criminal policies don't work.

To Price, violent criminals just need "one more chance" - so she'd let arrested criminals back on the streets with no bail - and even if they are convicted, no jail if they're under 25 years old. She'd embolden gang members by eliminating gang enhancements and she'd enable undocumented drug-dealers by not prosecuting them as part of her "sanctuary city" stance. She wouldn't prioritize anti-Asian hate crimes, even stating that it was "unfortunate" that Asians led the recall against Chesa Boudin. And her anti-police rhetoric doesn't bode well for cities like Oakland who can't hire enough police because they don't get enough applicants.

Pleasanton has started to see more outrageous crimes for our area - last year an Asian couple was robbed in front of their house at gunpoint in Parkside in the afternoon. A woman in Highland Oaks just fended off a home invasion last week.

If you're hoping that Pleasanton has more crime like this in the future, or you're a bounty hunter chasing criminals who don't show up for court - Pam Price is your gal.

If you support victims and want to see crime go down - vote for Terry Wiley!

If you live in district 3, keep in mind Councilmember Julie Testa has endorsed Pamela Price.Web Link What's not mentioned is that Pamela Price supported the progressive SF District Attorney who has since been recalled.

And if you live in District 1, be aware that Jeff Nibert also donated to Pamela Price’s campaign. This can be seen on Pamela Price’s 460 filed on 01/31/2022, Page 14: Web Link

If we don’t have a strong DA that believes in Law, Order, and Victims, than our policing efforts will be diminished. You want safe city’s, than you need strong DA’s, which in turn, creates strong police departments. Soros DA’s are reducing this country to a 3rd world status. But then that is the point. Crime, the southern boarder, and the economy are the top three issues at stake in this next election. Don’t let these ideologues just walk in and take over without a fight.
