    Why not elect Lea to the seat? If there is anything she can't do they can just hire a consultant. ;-)

    Until the "east side" residents bring their levels of "public assistance endeavors" to the same of that of the "west side", I say leave it alone.

    Want me to explain it in another language?

    oldguy you may be right about Kirsten. However I do think there are one or two others that have been making muted candidate noises. It will be intresting.

    I re-read the article and noticed that I saw a familar name! Another Johnson appointee who is a dry bean specialist! I thought Tracy was where you go to get dry beans? Anyway examining Bobs California 460 form I see he has TWO bean managers as campaign contributors. One of them steathily calls himself a "commodity broker" and the other a "Bean Manager". Which one was appointed by Bob? look at this public document: http://publicdocs.lodi.gov/Docs/CAMPAIGN_FILINGS/1997-2003/00002780.pdf

    The LNS quoted councilman Bob Johnson "Where's the beef?" Don't you mean "Where's the beans?" Your campaign manager (FINANCES) and two of your "finance" appointees are in the high finance "dry bean" trade. What is wrong with experience doing payroll and job estimating? It sounds more complex than "dry bean management" that I read on one of YOUR recommendations. How does one "manage dry beans" anyway?

    OTH, I could not agree with you more. You said it much better than I. However, I still think Kirsten is being set up to run against Mounce in November.

    Maybe a few "community activists" like Ms. Lea would would provide some fresh thinking that is sorely needed in Lodi City government.

    oldguy this was a personal snub, to make up for having dared to cross the CC in the past. Jane is as qualified as the other little puppets sitting on the commision. Only difference is she would not sit there quietly while the CC did as they pleased. This commission is nothing but a rubber stamp so the CC look good. Look at whose on it and tell anybody their going to go against the CC. Altogether now can we say Toothless Tigrs?

    OTH, good point. Our experts, Hansen and Johnson have made a real mess of the electric fund, raised out water, sewer and electric rates for that fiasco, and now tell Jane Lea, she does not have financial experience. WOW! What hypocrits.

    Coincidence that Dave Kirsten is on the planning commission and the budget and finance committee. Could it be tht the three amigos are setting him up to run against Mounce and then we would have the four horsemen. Poor Susan, she'll be on the short end of lots of 4-1 votes. Oh well, we get what we vote for. Be careful, Lodi.

    It is good to have different opinions on boards and commissions. I want someone to ask questions, not just be a board sitter. It takes folks like Jane Lea to watch our backs and look out for Lodi citzen's interest.
    I am glad that mounce and hitchcock wanted to let this person volunteer.

    It looks like the boys against the girls again. I hope the council listened to what John Johnson had to say. If I heard him correctly the budget and finance committee is a sham. If they do what we thought they would be doing we need a numbers person. What it appears they are doing is nothing except a shield to hide behind.

    Mr Johnson as for your comment "Where's the beef?" May I respectfully suggest a mirror.

    As far as Ms Lea having no finance experience, how much experience did Uncle Larry have when he started buying electricity? We know what a debacle that was. But hey, gotta committee slot open just open your personal phone books and call your buddies. That's what's wrong with politics in Lodi now. Anybody running in the next election for re-election you better start tap dancing now.

    EX MAYOR Bob Johnston still thinks hes mayor he has to run everthing his way its OK for him to appoint his neighbor I live on the Eastside and would like to see more people on the Eastside get involved in our town. As far as Johnston says "where's the Beef" He's wearing it and its called BULL

    WOW! THANK YOU to the 3 that voted this down. Earth to the other 2...."don't put an activist on a budget committee...you will get NOTHING accomplished." No offense to Ms. Lea's passion for things. Come on Mayor Mounce, look to our future!
