I guess we will never learn.
I agree with William tell

Folks, we must start changing incumbents as frequent as we change a baby's diaper and for the same reason.

But the naive do not understand why and will never understand why.

Many of you people can not think out the box. If he/she is an incumbent he or she must be the best person for that job. You are NAIVE and unfortunately you will teach your children to just go with the flow...sad, sad sad.

Thanks for listening...too bad you are not listening hard enough.

Can someone at the Weekly tell me why my comment was removed? Did I violate the policy by holding a different political view of Weekly Staff?

Mr. Tell - Your comment was racist and offensive. Yes, blantant, unfounded, offensive racist remarks that do not add to or further the conversation are against our policy and will be removed.

Don't know what comments William Tell made, but I can assure you that the PW also removes comments that don't agree with their politics.

Now, to the issue at hand. I have lived her for 25 years, and I can assure you the Tri-Valley frequently gets the shaft when it comes to political representation on the Board of Supervisors and other Alameda Country agencies. That is because the folks west of the hills significantly outnumber us in population, and they really love tapping us for money. Expect that to continue with Mr. Miley, resident of Oakland, being the Supervisor representing Pleasanton.

In addition to that, Pleasanton frequently gets the shaft from our neighbors Dublin and Livermore, because they don't want anything interfering with their "grow so we look like Los Angeles" mentality; Alameda County (at least we got rid of Hagerty), San Francisco (the way they continue to shaft us over the Bernal tract): left wing loons on the west side of the hills (i.e. the loons that sued Pleasanton to get get low-cost housing here; and Gov. Moonbeam who sued us over the same issue. Pleasanton needs to get a whole lot proactive in preventing this stuff rather than just letting it happen to us.

So, lots of shafting going on, eh? Interesting choice of words. On your mind a lot?
