    That said, I am sure he has a lovely home and gracious manners. I am only concerned about the manner in which he acquired them.

    All of that is to not even mention the role he has played in fueling corruption both at a local and national level.Spanos is a poster boy for the need to enact meaningful campaign financing reform in this country. The way he buys and sells politicians is nauseating.

    Sam< I agree with you. Mr. Spanos has the power, money and influence to trump any move made by anyone and his direction has made this area what it is today. He laughs at these Lodi wannabes and they have to have his stamp of approval before making a move. With Lodi jumping Harney Lane, a big mistake was made by Lodi planners. Mr. Spanos will be building and developing 70,000 or so homes there in the next 10 years. His projects will draw all those large anchor stores Lodi can't and won't get because of Mr. Spanos developments.Sam, you farmers know that Mr. Spanos would someday be interested in buying that land along Armstrong when Stockton builds north of it. I admire you and your family for farming your land, but someday you will be ready to retire and reap your rewards.

    Leonard, why do you hate Spanos?I spent many days in my high school years at his home. He was always so amazingly kind and generous. And my brother works for him now and loves him.Is it because he is a developer??? Oh, and I love those Chargers.

    Spanos donates to everyone in the region - at least he only gave $3200 to Sander and not been his lifeline like Jack Sieglock.Spanos has come through with HUGE checks ($50,000 range) for Sieglock in his past elections, and will likely do the same on this one seeing as he is on his finance committee.Sander a Spanos pet politician? Hardly. Sieglock a Spanos pet politician? Very much so.

    Dirty Dick Pombo also fed on Spanos slops. It should not have surprised anyone when he turned out to be one of the most corrupt Californian politicians in decades.

    I see that this gentleman is also feeding at the Spanos trough.Spanos pays good money for his pet politicians and he gets what he pays for.

    The fact that he is supported by any organized labor organization is enough for me not to support him.

    After living in the area for less than a decade, I wonder whether this guy even knows where Lodi is.
