This article serves to show how yet another Brown false stage is being set & lit! Nut-job Brown claims he's... " standing up for the consumer - the little hard working guy...!" a blatent first act for a Brown agenda. The second act, with subsequent pounding of his chest, IS set in this very article; READ IT AGAIN - how it is YOU, Pleasanton CITY with it's PEOPLES commendable planned growth THAT IS TRULY AT FAULT! if PLEASANTON WOULD CRAM ENDLESS BOXES (i.e. houses) ON EVERY AVAILABLE INCH, it would EASE THE COMMUTE,reduce POLLUTION, & SCUM LIKE MIDAS WOULDN'T HAVE RIPPED OFF SO VERY MANY COMMUTERS! Your utter slimeball AG says YOU, PLEASANTON, are the root of Midas greed! YOU, PLEASANTON with your " Draconian" housing caps."
