Margo Tarver, who is handling publicity for Councilwoman Cindy McGovern's campaign for mayor, sent out an email to the candidate's supporters and others Tuesday asking that they send her letters that she can forward to local newspapers, including this one.
"We are desperately in need of letters in support of Cindy McGovern for Mayor," Tarver states in an email sent at 8:45 a.m. Tuesday. With "Last Chance" in the subject line, the email further states:
"Election day is only a week away. This is our last chance to have a personal effect on the outcome of the election. Please write a letter as soon as possible and email it to me right away. Please include your address and phone number as required by the newspapers." Signed Margo Tarver, Letters to the Editor Chairman
In the same email received by the Pleasanton Weekly, messages of support for McGovern came from Anne Childs of Oak Vista Way, Lou Astbury of Hearst Drive and Matt Morrison of Chippendale Court.
Tarver is a former member of the Pleasanton Library Commission.
