Greetings from the Mayor’s office: I remember a story that was told to me as a young boy about a farmer and his donkey. Seems like the donkey had grown old, got lazy and just flat ran out of energy.

I can’t quite remember when we received a 5-inch rain that washed our river clean without a hurricane or some type of major disturbance or damage. Our official rainfall report, thus […]

Mayor’s Message – Pleasanton



Greetings from the Mayor’s office: I usually write this column on Monday of each week, but waited till Tuesday afternoon, so I could hear what Governor Abbott had to say about this “foolishness” of defunding city police departments.
