Unity for Better Community Three years ago, I was honored to be appointed to the Housing Commission by Mayor Jerry Thorne. Since then I have been working to build a better Pleasanton for all residents. Now, with your help, I’d like to continue that journey and ensure that our city remains strong and stable for future generations. Essential workers are the life blood of any community. Right now, our teachers, first responders, and other vital workers are struggling to remain in Pleasanton, putting our future at risk. Longer commutes for these essential workers means more traffic, putting even more strain on our already overtaxed roads. There is strength in diversity. As our community continues to grow, we need to create new solutions for decades-old problems. Increasing mental health services and creating opportunities for our minority and youth populations will help build a stronger Pleasanton.
