As the Galt City Council prepares to discuss the Delta Greens project on Tuesday night, some citizens are asking Councilwoman Barbara Payne to not vote on any issues related to the upscale senior housing.

Residents Rick Walters and Dan Jimenez are calling out Payne for what they consider to be too close of a relationship with the developer. The group started advocating for her to not vote on the Delta Greens projects after e-mails between her and the project's engineer surfaced online two weeks ago.

    Moot point cbbz4159, Darryl is not voting to modify the SOI. The gig is up, next opportunity to change things, 2010. We will be looking for the slate of PGF supported candidates. Until then, progress on Delta Greens has stopped. Perfect!

    Once again EJ00114 and cbbz4159 you supporters of I am a victim Barbara Payne and Delta Greens you got it all wrong! As far as I know no one is against a senior project.IT'S THE LOCATION!!!!Let me see if I get this right you two think that--Maggie Creamer,Mike Eaton, Mr.Ackerman, Mrs.R Ackerman, A. Meredith,Tim Raboy and let's not forget a GROUP OF MEAN SPIRITED PEOPLE are always plotting against you?? Now put on your thinking caps and take off your blinders so you can see both sides of the road could it be that the tax payers of Galt don't want to be held hostiage to greedy Land Owners and devlopers? Let me put it another way have Delta Greens find another location here in Galt and you will find a 100% support for the project.

    Charity Kenyon, LNS lawyer, wife of Mike Eaton. Makes for a good inside conection for getting a favorable story in your paper. Maggie Creamer was confortable with the connection also. It all seems to be a familiar source.Isn't Mike Eaton a lobbyist now for his former employer the Bird Life People. You can correct or elaberate as you wish. The Delta Green People are complaining of how little of their story ends up in the paper. I see the circle of friends are in place at LNS.I'm seeing the same at the GALT HERALD.Mike Eaton, lobbyist?Mr. Ackerman, married editorMrs. R. Ackerman, editorA. Meredith, nephew of Editor, concilmanTim Raboy, bird day promoter $$$Mike Eaton, Bird ConservatorySome dissclaimers may be needed in the future. Balanced reporting is what is desired by the people. Let "us" throw away what we don't agree with or line the garbage can.

    I's sad a group of people are using a senior project to campaign against to get relected to city council. So they go negative. This group are angry mean spirited people.You can't have a civil debate with these folks. They are wrong on the issues and misinforming, with no facts to support the things they say in public and in printed articles to the news
