The room suddenly erupted with cheers and loud claps following Galt City Council's unanimous vote to pass two agenda items that move the city one step closer to getting its own Walmart.

The approval to deny an appeal from a local group opposed to the project, as well as the approval to recertify a report on how the store would affect the proposed building area, comes after nearly four years of legal battles that have divided community members.

    Those businesses will suffer greatly by the "made in China" wal-mart (meaning that they do not even support our country by offering products made in the good ole U.S of A...

    And the beat goes on... This post is very simular to all the accusations that Lodi people stated prior to Walmart in Lodi... Businesses in Lodi adapted and offers products and services Walmart does not compete well against. I hope Galt gets their Walmart soon.
    Go Walmart!

    There's nothing offered in Galt? Try supporting our local businesses that are already in place. We have grocery stores (at least 4), two dollar stores, 2 or 3 pharmacies, just to name a few. Those businesses will suffer greatly by the "made in China" wal-mart (meaning that they do not even support our country by offering products made in the good ole U.S of A, i dare you to check). If I were a Wal-mart shopper, I can find one one in Lodi and one in Elk Grove, that is close enough for me. You will be sending your money to the Waltons, the richest family in this country (who offers only select employees benefits, and are known for their discrimination of women in the work place). Galts coffers will get very little in trade for all of the extra traffic, headaches and the mess that is left behind that always seems to surround their stores. When I moved to Galt, I was attracted by the small town feel, and the fact that there were no big box stores here. Too bad it all comes down to $$$ instead of values when it comes to some of the decisions made by the city council and other local officials I guess if you gread enough palms here, we will have massage parlors too. Gimme a "Hear Hear" if you agree.
