The city of Galt was profiled online Wednesday as part of the ongoing Strong Cities | Strong State campaign highlighting local government success stories throughout California. "Strong Cities | Strong State" is a project of the League of California Cities and the California City Management Foundation.

The city's profile is accessible online.

The Strong Cities | Strong State website is the centerpiece of an initiative to demonstrate the ways in which California cities and the state share important policy goals, according to a press release.

The profiles also illustrate how cities can only be successful in achieving the shared goals if they have the flexibility, authority and financial capacity to innovate and complete vital public works, affordable housing and other important projects.

"We are pleased to be part of the Strong Cities/Strong State campaign" City Manager Jason Behrmann said in a written statement. "It is a great opportunity to highlight some of the City's significant accomplishments and success stories and describe what makes Galt such a wonderful community."

The Strong Cities | Strong State campaign will continue profiling individual cities, ultimately highlighting all California cities. Profiles include photos, video and other media articulating how each individual city has been working to both deliver essential services, as well as elevate the quality life of its residents.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
