Mayor’s Message – Pleasanton



Greetings from the Mayor’s office, I was very sad to hear about the death of Pleasanton City Councilman and Pleasanton businessman, Robert Earl Wood, who passed away on Monday of this week. My brothers and I grew up with Robert Earl in this city, and we have many fond memories of him and his family. Robert Earl was one of the “good guys” of the world who never met a stranger. He was someone who we enjoyed being around and spending time with. And as a representative for District 5, he served with honor, pride and fairness. He served at least two different times on the city council and spent the last six years serving as a fellow councilman and working closely with me. He did an outstanding job and he will truly be missed. Our condolences, thoughts, prayers and love to his wife Debbie and his entire family.

I had the opportunity this past Monday to meet with Longhorn Museum Society Chairperson Patsy Troell. We we’re finalizing the program for the upcoming Grand Opening of the Jim Collums Windmill Exhibit on May 15. This exhibit is something to see along with all the windmill memorabilia and the exhibit has already attracted many visitors. The Grand Opening on May 15 will begin at 11:30 a.m. I would like to invite you to attend and experience this important part of history being featured right here in our city, The Birthplace of the Cowboy. The exhibit will be one of three in this state and one of the very few in this nation and I will look forward to seeing you at the museum. We owe a big thanks to Jim Collums for his generous donation which will be enjoyed by many for decades to come. Until next week … wear that mask and best regards.
