Business as usual....The only thing I read is mother's day and apple pie comments. Political BS from the word go.
I particularly like what Mayor Bill Clarkson said...the city is more focused on competing with other states and other countries.
Hey Mr. Mayor Clarkson, if you haven't looked you are just a Mayor of San Ramon...take care business at home. Compete with other states and countries, come down to earth Mr. Mayor and live reality.
Thanks for listening, Julia Pardini from Alamo

Keep increasing the sales tax (California is already the highest in the nation) and adding school bonds on property tax bills. Don't reduce those huge pensions of city employees because they will go out on strike and whine about it. No, continue to charge the taxpayer more and more and then wait until the cities go bankrupt and then you can layoff some of those government employees you just hired. Government is so efficient at taxing but not so efficient in running things. More and more retirees are leaving this state to go to states that don't have such high taxes. We will be left with a higher percentage that don't contribute anything. Way to go Mayors!

Julia in Alamo,
Read this story and you will see Mayor Clarkson knows what he's talking about. Web Link
San Ramon is home to many national and international corporations. Bishop Ranch attracts the cream of the crop away from other states and even other countries.
