It's back to the basics for TV30, the Tri-Valley community television system that has been broadcasting here since 1976.

I am the previous Mayor of Dublin who became chair when a decision was made to change the governing structure of TV30 to include the Mayors of Dublin, Pleasanton, Livermore, and San Ramon. To say Jeff Eorio is credited with saving this structure lacks any first-hand understanding of the situation. Sorry to say, but under San Ramon's leadership( Eorio at the time) TV30 was not in good shape. It doesn't really matter that much who gets credit for saving it, but if it weren't for Dublin's City Manager Joni Pattillo, who took over the fiscal management when I became chair, there probably wouldn't be a TV30 today. I understand San Ramon wanting to work within their ounty, and I hope that works for them. The Tri-Valley is now truly the three cities of our Valley. I am quite confident that TV 30's management and new Foundation will deliver for the residents of the Tri-Valley!
