She has done a very poor job protecting open space. She has only damaged what is left of open space in our area. There were financial questions during her tenure. Now she wants to be mayor, while she could not even get elected to city council. Has congestion gotten worse, has city livability improved under her charge.
Th e answer to all these is NO.
She will destroy what is left of San Ramon to collect a big pension and we have to live with the consequences.

This doesn't sound at all like the Aparna I know. The Open Space Committee is advisory to the City Council, and has little ability by itself make the kinds of decisions you are referring to. The Committee has no decision-making ability regarding traffic or congestion. I don't know where you are getting your information, but the committee members get no remuneration nor pension. It is a strictly a voluntary position appointed by the city council. What financial questions are you referring to?

John2006, I would like to invite you to attend one of our Open Space meetings to get an idea of what we do. We meet at San Ramon City Hall, at 8:30 am, on the second Monday of each month.
Here is the link to see what our responsibilities are- Web Link
This is a voluntary position. I do not get paid for any of the work, and that includes the work I’m doing for the Census 2020.
Only the City Council makes financial decisions. We are an advisory Open Space committee and are volunteering our time because we care about our open spaces. We do not make any decisions related to traffic and congestion.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
