Big Congrats to Sherri & KAH. Also to the Mayor for honoring Sherii's tirless work on behalf of others! I was at the recognition event & heard the Mayor say that the Fairgrounds packaged 130,000 KAH meals as an emergency food supply for our community. WOW!

Typical Hosterman, this is her neighbor. I wonder if there are any local nonprofits doing good work for our local people in need?

Robert.....for the 1000's of lives that Sherri has impacted, she deserves thanks from all of us. Another time, another place to complain about the mayor? Even better ~ try to say something that is positive and/or encouraging instead....it works wonders.

Robert, I agree with Cheryl Balch and Cheryl. What have you, or the neighbors on either side of you, for that matter done in comparison? You dislike Hosterman, ok. Don't attempt to poison something for someone who has made a "Difference".

Robert, You live in Pleasonton. Not a whole lot of people need help in your community. I have been a Nurse at ValleyCare for YEARS so I know this as a fact. And yes there are alot of Non-profits in the Tri-Valley area that help local people in need. My aunt Sherri has worked her butt off too make sure kids around the world eat. You should be happy that there are people still like her in this world. She helps kids in parts of the world were basic needs are not met. The kids in the countries that her meals go too are not like kids in Pleasonton. Also Please do not imply that my Aunt got this award because she lives next door to the Mayor. When was the last time you did anything positive for your community or the Human beings of this planet?
