While the race for the White House dominates all media on a daily basis, things are becoming more interesting every day at the local level. 
 
Recently, the Pleasanton City Council voted to place a citizen's initiative on the November ballot to limit retail structures in the proposed Johnson Drive Economic Development Zone (JDEDZ) to less than 50,000 square feet (the anti-Costco petition). 
 
Last Saturday at a special meeting, the Pleasanton Unified School Board unanimously voted to place a $270 million school bond measure on the same ballot.  
 
After the first week in August, the filing period will close and we'll learn who will make up the final field of candidates for school board, city council and mayor.
In the weeks and months ahead, Chamber leaders 
and the BACPAC will weigh in on local races, basing positions and endorsements on Pleasanton 2020: A Community Vision, the Chamber's public policy agenda for helping Pleasanton remain among the best cities in America in which to live, work and raise a family. You can find Pleasanton 2020 in its entirety on our website, or obtain a hard copy at the office. Also, you might want to attend our monthly 2020 Forums on the second Wednesday of each month from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. at the chamber. Always informative, these forums provide an opportunity for vetting ideas, projects and programs for a better Pleasanton.
 
In the meantime, if you'd like to share your thoughts on any of the above or a subject of interest for a future 2020 Forum, please drop me a note at scott@pleasanton.org.

Relay for Life
Two groups raised over $14,500

The annual Relay for Life Pleasanton event, which is an organized, overnight community fundraising walk, took place in late July and both the Ambassadors and Young Professionals put together teams to raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer through the Relay For Life movement.

The  Pleasanton Chamber  Relay for Life Ambassador Team raised $11,664.00 to fight cancer and took home Rookie Team of the Year honors. 
The PYP  would like to thank to everyone who supported them through the event with their Relay for Life team. They had team members that stayed all 24 hours and they came in 5th for total fundraising with $2,795.
