The San Francisco Chronicle reported last week that when County Supervisor Scott Haggerty could not sell his house, John Wong (associated with developer James Tong) purchased Scott Haggerty's house in Livermore for him. This is detailed in the Chronicle's story here

What isn't mentioned in the story is that this purchase in January 2007 was just after the Board of Supervisors approved a boundary shift to have East Dublin put in Haggerty's district. After Wong purchased Haggerty's Livermore house, Haggerty and Dublin Vice Mayor Kasie Hildenbrand co-purchased a Dublin residence together so that the two could move in together according to the Oakland Tribune Web Link
Not to mention this was when suddenly Fremont Developer John Wong expressed interest in building a strip shopping center on Staples Ranch, that Hosterman gushed in Pleasanton city council meetings she would personally nominate to win some sort of architecture award.
Strange that I can't find the John Wong purchase of Scott Haggerty's house in Livermore detailed in the property listings section of housing purchases in January or February 2007 back issues of the Pleasanton Weekly. Why did the Pleasanton Weekly not disclose this?
