The IE supporting Nate Miley is running a radio
spot three times-a-day in the Tri Valley.

Pleasanton Families for Supervisor Nate Miley, the Independent Expenditure Committee formed earlier this month in support of the incumbent supervisor, and largely funded by donors who previously gave to his re-election campaign, has released a radio commercial.

The 60-second spot, which has been broadcast three times a day since last Thursday is running on the Tri Valley radio station KKIQ-FM. (LISTEN BELOW)

The ad is similar to a mailer sent last week by the IE that highlights Miley’s endorsements from the entire Pleasanton City Council and features Mayor Jerry Thorne and Councilmember Karla Brown.

“We don’t always agree, but the Pleasanton City Council agrees on one thing this election, Supervisor Nate Miley is the best choice for Alameda County supervisor,” Thorne says at the beginning of the commercial.

The focus on Pleasanton through the IE and a mailer from Miley’s re-election touting the backing of its city leaders, strongly suggests the campaign is hoping to shore up support in the eastern portion of District Four, which also includes East Oakland.

Voters in Pleasanton are the least likely to be familiar with Miley since he has only represented the city since redistricting in 2011. Furthermore, the city was put in play earlier this month when popular Rep. Eric Swalwell endorsed Miley’s opponent, Bryan Parker.

In addition, Pleasanton is also the only city in the entire East Bay that includes a Republican majority of council members.
