Shoelaces were tied, race numbers were carefully pinned to shirts, and youngsters and adults alike were ready to race around Downtown Lodi before going to Saturday’s art festival.

But the race did not start as planned.

    Perhaps Rad can intervene and ensure that future local events can be held without the involvement of politics, and with the best interest of the community in mind. This wasn't a protest march at the Capitol. This was a fundraiser for the benefit of the community. Use a little common sense.

    It appears the Lodi PD is sending a message that if cuts are made in their department, things will not go very smoothly, and the barricades were not what was stopping the event. This type of tactic can only hurt an already ailing local economy.

    I was at HSS for the art portion of the event. Having been a runner in my younger days I ventured over to the Starting Line after finishing setting up my wife's booth. I spoke with one high-ranking City of Lodi employee who said that the Public Works Traffic Division had approved the smaller number of signs, and someone at LPD had signed off on it, but now the LPD was requiring more signs. There's always two sides to every story.
