Steve Glazer secures endorsements from the Pleasanton Mayor and
the majority of the City Council

Pleasanton, CA—Candidate for State Senate Steve Glazer announced today that he has secured endorsements from four out of the five members of the Pleasanton City Council.  Mayor Jerry Thorne and Councilmembers Kathy Narum, Arne Olson and Jerry Pentin have all endorsed Glazer in his bid for State Senate District 7.

“I am honored to have the support of a majority of the elected officials in Pleasanton,” said Glazer.  “These leaders are working hard to keep Pleasanton an outstanding place to live and raise a family and it means a great deal to me to have their endorsements.”

"Steve Glazer believes there should be local control on local issues.  He and I share the creed that government closer to the people is most responsible and accountable.  He would make an outstanding state Senator,” said Pleasanton Mayor Jerry Thorne.

Councilmember Kathy Narum said of Glazer, “Steve has the independence and experience to fight the powerful interests in Sacramento who want to steal our water, raise our taxes and usurp our local control. In this field of candidates, Steve is the clear choice."

Pleasanton boasts over 1,200 acres of parks and open space and has some of the top rated public schools in California. 

Recently Glazer called on his opponents to provide full transparency of their campaign promises by releasing their answers to special interest questionnaires on their websites. So far, none of his opponents have made their questionnaires public.

Pleasanton Councilmember Arne Olson said of Glazer, "I am supporting Steve because he has a proven record of taking important stands on issues most elected officials are afraid to touch; pension reform, making tough cuts to ensure a balanced budget and opposing that outrageous BART strike. He has strength of character. He is Independent.  I am confident Steve can work in a bi-partisan manner in Sacramento.”

Glazer currently serves as the Mayor of Orinda and a Trustee of the California State University 23-campus system. During his tenure on the Orinda City Council, Glazer has helped balance budgets while making improvements to schools, libraries and roads.

State Senate District 7 includes the communities of Pleasanton, Livermore, Dublin and Sunol. 

The primary will be held Tuesday, March 17.
