Pleasanton voters on Tuesday elected slow-growth advocate Karla Brown and Planning Commission member Jerry Pentin to the City Council.
Brown and Pentin defeated Erlene DeMarcus, a longtime East Bay transportation guru and former BART director who's in favor of the controversial project to extend the rail service to Livermore.
Brown, in reacting to her win, said, "I am impressed with Pleasanton voters; they know that their candidates should be focused on local issues and funded by local sources. Seats on the Pleasanton City Council are not for sale by large scale builders or out-of-area investors."
Pentin, said in an email to Patch Wednesday:
"I am very humbled by the turnout of support for my council bid and am elated to win the faith of the Pleasanton voters and to be elected to the Pleasanton City Council. I will continue to work hard to represent all of Pleasanton as we deal with the issues of the city. I congratulate my fellow opponents for running a Pleasanton type campaign, fair and above board, something all of us in Pleasanton expect from our city leadership."
