The Galt Planning Commission could be growing after the Galt City Council gave direction to add two additional commissioners. The change still requires a vote to change the city's municipal code, expected next month.

Council members Curt Campion and Barbara Payne voted against moving forward with the change at a meeting earlier this week.

    I am pleased that individual council members in Lodi do not appoint planning commissioners. Each planning commissioner needs the majority vote of the Council. Planning Commissioners need to serve the entire community, not just the Council member that appointed them.

    That's why the planning commissions in both Galt and Lodi are heavily stacked to accommodate the needs of the developers/realtors/investors/good ol' boys and well connected and appointed by the council persons themselves, seemingly a good acquaintance or large contributor to their campaign. These planning puppets should be appointed on a two or three year basis just like council candidates. The outcomes of most of these highly nepotic planning commissions are seemingly always in favor of controversial issues that most taxpayers are against, yet are passed by the same old stacked deck while those who don't have the connections are usually shut down. I believe these appointments made by the council members themselves are just another roundabout process of keeping the good ol' boys regime alive, wealthy, profitable and always dominant in the business and finance climate.
