    "No public sector employee in California elects to join a union."

    But most like the benefits of membership. Otherwise there would be a great upheaval against unions and the members would dump them.

    Just ask your buddy, BS, who actively participated in the leadership of his union.

    josh, that is where you need to come up to speed. No public sector employee in California elects to join a union.

    Thanks for the clarification Ross. (I should have figured that out myself) As mentioned earlier, I don't have a problem with them endorsing a candidate as individuals......I just have a problem with them endorsing anyone as an elected body when they do not run as "party" members for their own office. And John, I consider myself "up to speed". Unions are not publicly elected bodies and how they conduct themselves is up to them and their union members. Of course I've never been a member of a Union and I have no idea how they operate.

    Josh: You have to come up to speed. Galgani is endorsed by the Public Safety Unions, and I guarantee you they did not take a vote of their membership. She also was endorsed by the Calif Fed of Teachers and they werent allowed to vote either. In spite of Ross Farrow's clarification, unions never get to vote on who they will endorse.

    The Board of Supervisors didn't take a stand as a government board. I merely identified the four individuals as members of the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    I don't like the fact that non-party elected officials officially support "party" candidates. What possible benefit can the County receive for the endorsement? And what happens if their endorsed candidate loses? If they want to support them as individuals then that's fine but not a an elected body who do not run as "party" candidates themselves.

    Come on you GOOD OL' BOYS! Maybe the thought of an intelligent, experienced female scares you...and then add "Democrat" to her credentials! Oh my, you must be shaking in your boots. Go Assembly woman Galgiani!

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
