Under a draft released Friday, San Joaquin County's new congressional district keeps the county mostly intact, as most local officials wanted.

However, the Lodi area stands to have split representation at the state Capitol if the maps of California's Assembly and state Senate districts are approved in August. That's not sitting well with local political and business leaders.

    Way to be sensitive toward people who suffer from mental illnesses, BTW.

    What exactly is "bipolar mental disease" anyway?

    This looks like a real mumbo jumbo to me also. If the senate redistricting holds true, however, Lodi's wine baron's will get the once in a lifetime chance to become another Napa, as I recall one greenbelt championing former council person state over and over again. With the Napa valley being in the same district, maybe Lodi could adopt Napa as its California "sister city" and share Napa's secrets on how to become a wine tourist destination?

    I wonder if the criteria for determining the boundaries is public record? Maybe having bipolar mental disease was a prerequisite to be eligible for this citizen committee.
