Town Square

An exciting January for us and the news

Original post made by Jeb Bing, editor of the Pleasanton Weekly, on Jan 28, 2013

January has been an exciting month, with President Obama's festive inauguration and parade, with Governor Brown's new budget wiping away a deficit that stood at $25 billion when he took office two years ago, and with a newly-constituted Pleasanton City Council eyeing a rising revenue stream that could help fund more lighted sports fields in Bernal Community Park.

Congrats on your longevity in publishing. I do, however, have to take issue with your rosy opening paragraph, in framing the lead for this topic:
"January has been an exciting month, with President Obama's festive inauguration and parade, with Governor Brown's new budget wiping away a deficit that stood at $25 billion when he took office two years ago, and with a newly-constituted Pleasanton City Council eyeing a rising revenue stream that could help fund more lighted sports fields in Bernal Community Park."

Everything you described above is seemingly the result of pennies from heaven. Of course, with as much experience as you have in journalism, you and most residents of Pleasanton know that nothing is free and that politicians never lie or fudge numbers (yea, right).
I suspect that when reality sets in, you'll really have something to write about and we'll all be thankful for the fact that this publication is 'free'.
