“If you want family covered, you pay for that yourself. Otherwise, only insure the elected person. That is what people want ... and we’re all equally elected by the people.”

JoAnne Mounce, Lodi City Council member

“It is almost impossible to stay elsewhere (other) than the host hotel. You are running back and forth, and it just doesn’t make sense.”

JoAnne Mounce, Lodi City Council

“The city didn’t completely understand the needs of the school district when we remodeled.”

Joanne Mounce, Lodi City Council member

“They’re a community eye when it comes to the (Lodi Animal) Shelter and ideas. The people who work on it bring fresh ideas. They’ve served the council well and I think they will continue to do so.”

Bob Johnson, Lodi City Councilman

“There’s a continual inability to fill the seats on that commission. I think the city clerk had posted vacancies for the fourth or fifth position for months, and got no response.”

    Mr. Thompson, with Mayor Mounce being the top vote getter by a landslide and being only one vote from the quorum of five that requires a majority of three to pass any issue or ordinance, I doubt that Mayor Mouncehas little, if anything, to do with destroying your city. And she seems to very well qualified, more so than the group of three that dominate the quorum and always band together on nearly every issue. If you look at the issues in the archives from any council meeting you will see that Johnson, Hansen and Katzakian are the three votes that stick together that must be destroying Lodi and not Mayor Mounce. In fact, Mayor Mounce has voted against the three good old boys on many occasions being the only council representative to have the courage to speak up and be heard.

    Great job Mayor Mounce. Looks like the good old boys couldn't topple you Next election will bring more voices and votes to the city council race as the eastside of Lodi is organized and voter registration is made a priority to hopefully give the eastside ethnic residents to install a representative of their choice on city council. Congratulations, Mayor JoAnne Mounce!

    Congratulations to the two top vote winners. It is obvious they have our confidence to lead this city. Any negative comments, if not constructive criticism, are just sour grapes.

    Why does this City continue to elect Mounce? She's totally unqualified for the job and is destroying our City.
