I was there, and I was shocked that Cheryl Cook-K put her over-sized sign in the yard of a house right across the street - facing Jerry's event. Really bad taste and does not show well for Cheryl at all.

You're right George about bad taste. However, don't forget all our PUBLIC union employees in Pleasanton are working 24/7 for her....putting our her signs, knocking on doors, passing out literature, giving her money, parking cars, blogging with lies here on PW . . . . . .no end
Are you union George, just bawling out the sign guys for being obvious and tacky?

"housing that's affordable to teachers, police and firefighters and others."
Has DeMarcus been living under a rock? Those public servants are too high paid to qualify for "affordable housing."

Don't miss out on the discussion!
