The performance of the webcast tonight was horrific. Pleasanton's streaming servers were really slow.

Go Thorne! Wish I could hear every word you're saying though...

Mayor Hosterman, Councilmember Thorne, and Councilmember Cook-Kallio were the three who carried the day for Pleasanton so be sure to thank them.

Yes...Hosterman, Thorne and Cook-Kallio carried the day...afraid of a referendum...afraid of letting the voters speak...but not afraid to bring more multi-million dollar homes to Pleasanton and increase traffic, gridlock and pollution. Yes, I will be sure to thank them all next election day.

I have never trusted meetings held "in camera."

I think you mean in the 2010 election.

Just watching the video again... Thorne really nails the "bigger picture" spot on. I especially appreciate when he details his own experience of the comments he heard. That just ain't something that can be argued against.

Have to agree - Jerry Thorne addressed the issue head-on, honestly, and directly. I wasn't really committed one way or the other on this issue. After listening to Jerry's comments, I totally support his position. I also share the concerns that he raised during his comments.
