An organization has been formed to promote people of different cultures mingling in Lodi and elsewhere in San Joaquin County.

Robert Rojas, executive director of Cultural Heritage Council of San Joaquin County, told the Board of Supervisors recently that people of different nationalities and cultures don’t mix very often. It’s something he’d like to change.

    Doug stated: "if it isn't a wine event, the good old whnrich only themselvesite boys' society is scarce."

    From what I hear the CC member with a case of "the sniffles" is a scotch afficionado, not the vino - but I guess any alcohol will do as long as rubbing elbows with the Lodi elite is the goal.

    Doug stated... It's time Lodi finally stepped out of the segregated like 50's and joined the modern day world, or lose some of its state and government funding, especially city funded non-profits.

    More government strings and controls ... there has got to be a better way... a much better way...its beginning to feel alot like George Orwell and his 1984 Big Brother....

    I didn't see any of the stuffed white shirts form the Lodi good old boy community at the Cinco De Mayo celebration at Hutchins last weekend? It seems that if it isn't a wine event, the good old whnrich only themselvesite boys' society is scarce. This group needs to make a presentation at the Lodi Improvement Committe meeting to get the attention of the great white Lodi society that dominates Lodi and ask why this bigoted little town keeps their majority/minority penned in on the eastside and many Lodi employers depend on their cheap labor, sometimes illegal and paent funding, id cash under the table, to enrich only themselves. It's time Lodi finally stepped out of the segregated like 50's and joined the modern day world, or lose some of its state and government funding, especially city funded non-profits.
