Danville, San Ramon discuss their Spheres of Influence

Original post made on Dec 1, 2009

As Contra Costa County officials look at preliminary plans for a large scale development in the Tassajara Valley, leaders from San Ramon and Danville met recently with District 3 County Supervisor Mary N. Piepho to discuss what they each believe should be the future of the land between the two jurisdictions.

Dear Dolores,

You have a story based on a political release by district 3 that will significantly impact our corridor and the nature of development. There is no comment by any reader? There is no comment by the handful of pseudonyms that predominate this forum?

What issues are important enough for commentary? What political activities deserve consideration? What future reality is important enough to create willingness to comment?

More importantly, what does deserve the depth of study by readers to fully comment on a very important reality concerning growth and local political control?

Is it possible the commentary can be more than complaints about other authors?

We don't need to develop anything more in this area. We especially don't need to build any low income housing to import a bunch of workers (illegals). If this development is developed, it should not include housing. We should be having our local boys working the farm. Are we not in a recession? Do normal people in this area not need jobs? Youths should be tilling those fields. Local adults like my uncle who just lost his job can daylabor there to make it through tougher times. But no. They want to import in a bunch of workers, namely illegal immigrants. Because the government's a b****

I don't get the Dave Hudson for President comment. Is it because he already has the obfuscation and dissembling skills needed to be President? Because after reading his quotes in the article, I was left with the distinct impression that he was hiding San Ramon's true intentions. (That said, I don't know the man, so perhaps that's an incorrect impression.)

Don't miss out on the discussion!
