Recently, I read advertisements from the two incumbents in the Lodi City Council election indicating that the council has reduced city debt. According to the facts, I find these assertions fascinating.

Fact: The city’s General Fund Debt has increased from $5 million in 1996 to $14 million in 1999.

Source: City of Lodi General Fund Financial Plan, Page 3, Line 37.

Fact: The city’s General Fund Debt is estimated to increase to $34 million in 2001. A decision made by the current City Council.

Fact: The city’s debt per capita has increased from $91.79 in 1966 to $260.32 in 1999 and it is estimated to increase to $622.98 in 2001.

I urge you to ignore the false information being presented by the incumbent candidates and to make a change on the City Council.

On Tuesday, vote Bob Johnson for Lodi City Council. He will bring honest fiscal responsibility to our city.
