Campaign Position

By Fred Watson

Candidate for Council Member; City of Pleasanton

This information is provided by the candidate
Integrity at all levels of our government.
For my campaign I have selected three principles of integrity that describe my approach to government and public service.

These three principles are:




ACCOUNTABILITY - All our elected officials are accountable to the citizens of their community. Officials need to plan for the future accordingly, understanding the long term effects of what their decisions are today.

RESPONSIBILITY - We entrust our elected officials with responsible contractual agreements on our behalf with other agencies and third parties. Lawsuits based on poor contracts can quickly deplete our financial reserves.

TRANSPARENCY - The community should always have easy access to how their taxes are being utilized. Enhance Pleasanton's web site to encompass all city projects, project costs, project delays, project overruns and project contracts. Wouldn't it be nice to know at a glance where and how our tax dollars are being used?

As a community we can get accountability. Together we can bring transparency to the processes of city government. Together we can get our elected officials to use our taxes responsibly.

It is time you and I became involved! Please vote responsibly November 2nd.

My name is Fred Watson and I want to be your city councilman.
