Mayor’s Message – Pleasanton



Greetings from the Mayor’s office: I have had a lot of positive comments about the sidewalks going in on Bensdale Street and I am pleased to see this happen.

Greetings from the Mayor’s office: I hope this column finds you and your family in good health and feeling positive in 2021.

We are in the second week of 2021 and things are moving right along, despite the coronavirus pandemic.

We need to continue to exercise the […]

Greetings from the Mayor’s office: During this time of the year, I always think of our service men and women stationed around the world who will not be home for Christmas. As a veteran, I remember spending several holiday seasons in countries that don’t even recognize Christmas. Of course, on the military base, we had the chance to attend church […]
