Thank you for offering the weekly's view on the election and I happily throw it into a trash bin.

Allow me to summarize the most important point of this article:

PW's position regarding fighting the state's takeover of local control: "While the underlying arguments might have merit, Pleasanton cannot position itself -- legally and financially -- in a hard-to-win fight against the state over residential development "

"hard-to-win"?!? Well shucks, let's just give up, huh?

This reminds me of: "Russia will conquer Kiev in 3 days and the war then be why fight back?" Pathetic...defeatist...dribble.

My Analysis: Pleasanton Weekly is shilling for Big Development and has no faith in the people to push back against overreaching government.

Recommendation: Only vote for candidates who are fighting for local control as a top issue. If it's not the #1 issue, then the candidate is a proxy for Big Development and stay away. No only listen to their words, bit verify their deeds on this issue.

Voting for Wallace, and if I lived in District 3 I’d vote for Anybody But Testa! Time to clean house!

Karla running unopposed is not a ringing endorsement of her. It's a calculated effort to focus on eliminating her 3-vote majority, which would have enabled her to beat an opponent this year, and thereby neutralize her for the next two years, then run a candidate to beat her in 2024.

And it's working: thanks for the Dean Wallace endorsement, PW.
