Effective leaders and good government do not come along that often. As longtime Diablo residents, we have seen Supervisor Mary Nejedly Piepho working hard to serve the communities she has been elected to represent. Mary is a part of our community and we see her at many local events and meetings. She is a breath of fresh air and has worked to provide communities like Diablo and Alamo the highest level of county services and improved local governance.
Mary has rolled up her sleeves and gone to work to serve us, and we respect and acknowledge her commitment. She has shown that she is not afraid of taking on the difficult tasks. By addressing local and often controversial issues which have lingered for years, Mary has taken on challenges that others have avoided. It has been a long time since we have seen such a strong quality in an elected leader.
Being an elected official is not an easy responsibility, but Mary Piepho has done an outstanding job and we strongly support her as our county supervisor.
Weatherford Family, Diablo
Thank you for your excellent article on the consolidation of newspapers and coverage in the Bay Area. I have noticed a significant decline in local news reporting in the San Ramon Valley Times, and rely more than ever on your publication to find out what's going on. In a single issue, I learned of the vandalism at Livorna Park, the potential sale of Borel's orchard, and the possibility that Supervisor Mary Piepho's office is behind the move to rename Danville Boulevard. If true, it is a condescending gesture, clearly designed to placate the masses and defuse the movement for incorporation of Alamo.
Keep up the good work!
