Mayors hope Washington trip brings some cash for roads

Original post made on Mar 4, 2013

At the Tri-Valley Cities Council meeting Wednesday night, Danville Mayor Newell Arnerich said all five cities -- Danville, Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton and San Ramon -- once again put infrastructure at the top of their list at this year's gathering of Tri-Valley mayors in Washington, D.C.

These Mayors must be living in a cave.

The Fed's want to CUT SERVICES and the Mayors think they can get money for roads. They are all brain dead or the Fed's are BSing us like usual or the Mayor's just want to spend more taxpayer money and visit Washington. (I think they want a vacation in Washington)

Whatever...good luck.

Thanks for taking the time to listen and maybe even comment....

Not a coincidence that the Mayors' trip was during the inauguration. Great time to visit at taxpayers' expense!

Arnerich once again demonstrates that he will sell Danville's soul to get some dollars from a government entity. He is selling out to developers and ABAG to get some transportation money BACK that Danville paid into the Measure J fund. Now he is working the feds to get more and what are the strings attached??

Washington takes our money and will give a little bit back to us if we do what they say.

Arnerich, would have a better chance getting funds from his developer friends as they " owe " him !!

Newell is taking quite a hit with your readers but it is well deserved

Is it true that Newell is the one who suggested the Ultimate configuration for Alamo????

Well Peggy if Newell is involved in Alamo, I would strongly suggest to him...STAY FAR AWAY FROM ALAMO...KEEP YOUR OPINIONS AND SUGGESTIONS TARGETED TO DANVILLE. You are not needed nor are you welcome in Alamo. I do not believe anything is going to move forward with regard to the Ultimate Intersection Configuration.

Alamo has their head screwed on right.

Thanks, Julia Pardini from Alamo
