New leaders for local Mormon congregations

Pleasanton stake includes Dublin, has more than 2,100 members

New leaders have been chosen to guide the the Pleasanton stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon).

The Pleasanton California Stake will now be guided by its new president Jeremy McFadden, who is the vice president of Finance at Halt Medical, with Richard Hair serving as 1st Counselor and Alexander Tang as 2nd Counselor.

Hair is an account executive with Dell. Tang is a senior technical leader with Cisco Systems, Inc.

McFadden is married to Rebecca McFadden and they have five children. Hair and his wife Christy are the parents of four children. Tang is married to Sonia Tang and they are the parents of four children.

The change comes as Kendall J. Cooper steps down as president along with Bruce D. Bird, 1st Counselor, after nearly 10 years of service.

The church operates with a lay ministry and all of its local members serve without pay.

The six congregations in Pleasanton and Dublin that comprise the Pleasanton stake have more than 2,100 members.
