Mayor’s Message – Pleasanton



My schedule sometimes runs like the school lunch menus did when I was in grade school on Main St. They were subject to change at any time and usually did.

Greetings from the Mayor’s office: I had the opportunity this past week to attend a couple of events that the City of Pleasanton either sponsored or partnered with. Last Friday night, I attended Ropin’ Dreams at the arena of Cowboy Fellowship. Linda and I were quite impressed with both the rodeo and attendance on both Friday and Saturday. This event […]

Greetings from the Mayor’s office: In the past several weeks, I have been visiting with you concerning some upcoming projects including changes concerning the Cowboy Homecoming. Brad and Cindy Mumm attended last weeks Council meeting and brought forward some great ideas for the Homecoming which will be announced in the coming weeks. An idea was brought to me several months […]

I have been kicking around a couple of ideas for the past several days and wanted to share them with you. Both of these I am in favor of and will work with city staff and the Chamber to see these through. First of all, I am in favor of making events “bigger and better” and the Cowboy Homecoming is […]
