Great meeting last night, thank you!

A huge thank you to everyone who showed up at our events last night, we were well represented and had a great time.

Michael Mulcahy was gracious enough to provide our group with some very good "eats" at Billy Berks, and his remarks at the city council meeting were well received. Marine Layer who writes the New A's Ballpark blog has a great "play by play" of the council meeting, and if you want to watch the speakers for yourself, click here to find the video when it is posted (as of this morning last nights meeting had not yet been archived.)

Here are some pictures from last night, you might recognize a few of the folks who were there. First, here are the pictures from Billy Berks:

There were a number of people who spoke in favor of the stadium last night, including former mayors Janet Grey Hayes and Susan Hammer, County Assessor Larry Stone and Carl Guardino of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group (click here to read the survey done by the SVLG). Additionally there were a number of people who voiced both opposition and concerns, but overall I would say that there were more people who spoke in favor of bringing MLB to San Jose.

All said, it was a great night and it was nice to meet so many of our facegroup folks in person.

And WOW! Our facebook group is almost at 700! Keep up the great work everyone. We need to keep growing our numbers so when the time comes we are ready to get to work and help our city become major league.

Play ball San Jose.
