There are about 20,000 votes, yet they're still not all counted? Good lord, our government election processes are awful.

If you want to see what's driving inflation, look no further than this. Headed towards double dip recession, spiking interest rates, severe layoffs and we think we need to build new gyms.

Just goes to show the only thing recession proof is the government spending your money.

Can someone please explain why it has taken so long to count the Pleasanton Measure I votes? This is not a big town and we generally get fairly low turnout in elections. We need to go back to requiring all votes be postmarked and RECEIVED by election day, instead of allowing the vote to drag out for weeks. If we want to feel confident that our elections are valid and honest, holding an election month is not the right direction.

I believe with mail in ballots the law says they have 30 days to collect, review and count all the ballots. I think Dec 9th is the final day.

While I don’t think there is anything going wrong with the counts, one has to wonder why the supposed greatest democracy on earth takes a month to let us know the results.

I was using drop box voting until this last election. I got to thinking I want my ballot to be secret as it should be. Mail in lets everyone who handles it know my personal choices. My vote is nobody’s business but my own.

Why do I have a feeling that money from this measure will go to pay for Haglund's newly purchased District Office building???

the proceeds of selling most of the DO acres will cover the 'new' digs. As well as a tenant, who will be paying the district.

One only needs to view where the money is scheduled to go to see.
