Trudi Hartley, Pleasanton

I highly recommend Karla Brown for mayor of Pleasanton. She has years of experience in community work as a volunteer and on boards and committees, including the city council and vice mayor. I like that she has pledged not to take donations from developers. She cares about the wishes of the residents and maintaining the character of our town. She is very approachable; you can take your concerns to her and she will listen. I would love to see her as our mayor.
