Paid for by Kathy Narum for City Council 2014 FPPC# 1354971
Friends and Neighbors,
I am proud to call Pleasanton my home, having lived here for the better part of the past two decades. Over the years, my family and I have enjoyed all that this incredible city has to offer, from its Olympic-sized swimming pool, miles of walking trails, ridges and beautiful parks and open spaces, to an outstanding public school system. I have witnessed firsthand how a city such as ours can improve the kind and quality of life for all its residents. I am committed to preserving what works and making improvements where needed, so I’m running for re-election to the Pleasanton City Council and hope I can count on your support this November.
My priorities for Pleasanton continue to be carefully managing growth, enhancing our public schools, ensuring public safety and a vibrant downtown.
Pleasanton has been voted as one of the best places to live. One of our biggest challenges is maintaining the quaint character that is our community’s trademark, which can only be preserved by making tough choices. For example, I insisted on a wider range of options to ensure that East Pleasanton plan mirrors the character of our entire community.
We take great pride in our excellent public school system. Strong collaboration between the city and school district demonstrates how enterprising partnerships can lead to extraordinary results.
We also know Pleasanton is one of the safest cities in California. Believing that rapid response to the smaller problems, coupled with community outreach, helps to prevent bigger problems from occurring, I support our public safety officers getting what they need to get the job done right.
I developed these priorities after seeking your input and listening to you, and I hope you agree that these priorities are what matter. I am eager to continue the conversation and want to earn your vote. I encourage and welcome your input and invite you to contact me about any issues or concerns you may have. It is through these coffees and conversations that you help me help us make a better and more vibrant city.
