    Doug, I guess you wouldn't recognize a compliment if it slapped you in the face. As one who has always demanded transparency and public disclosure I couldn't imagine your outrage for this situation. Talk about backroom deals......this has to take the cake.

    Josh.... couldn't agree more... Citizen's for Open Government is flat out blackmail... who are these guys? Are they from out of state?
    Why are they involved with Lodi? Strange?

    "The group, which also protested against a Walmart Supercenter, dropped its opposition to Carouba's project after coming to an agreement with the developer before the Planning Commission meeting."

    Regardless of your position on this annexation this kind of private negotiation with Citizen's for Open Government is flat out blackmail. Where on the annexation application does it appear that approval from Citizen's for Open Government is required? What was the agreement? Does it involve the developer paying money to this group for their approval? This group needs to be smoked out and made public. I would expect my good friend Mr. Chaney to lead this charge against these secret agreements and blackmail.
