Hey guys, I've got this great idea! How about we promote the fact that we have absolutely nothing to offer?

Phil is a genius, everybody! There is literally nothing great about San Ramon, and we think its great!

Further proof that the C students grow up to join councils. The smart people are busy know...something.

Stay the heck out of San Ramon! This is not a tourist destination. our lovely real estate Mayor is making it that way just like all the extra housing. San Ramon was once a nice quiet town. Tourists stay out there is nothing here to see, go to San Francisco if you want to see something

I traveled a lot on business. There is no way I would ever have extended a business trip to stay in suburbia like San Ramon. To promote such an idea is fantasy. Proponents of such an idea are lacking in many areas, including common sense.

They are looking for "Revenue Generation". Currently the city of San Ramon gets most of its funding from Sales Tax. Not very much from Property Tax.

Selling nothing is like selling the sleeves off your vest; mindless tripe.

“This is a process that required a bunch of dull bureaucratic stuff like establishing this tourism district, and then it required a long period of time to get actual capital to hire a company like Mering,” Councilman Phil O’Loane said. “Not all of this is going to work but its clever and hanging out for an extra day doing nothing can be (pretty great).”

“When it comes to leisure time and relaxation, nothing really can be something amazing." Mering’s creative director Scott Conway told the council. Whoever on the San Ramon City Council that voted to spend our money on hiring Mering ought to be fired.

This fiasco is a clear case of the Emperor is wearing no clothes.
