    600 signatures! wow! obviously no one on the city council gave a darn about any of these 600 people before taking steps to increase our rates and pay for other capital projects. Why don't you consider budget cuts in the top officials salaries to help offset these increases instead of giving them pay raises. shame on you! we will remember you come election day.

    Have to agree with you, T&C. It does seem a bit "convenient"...wonder what's next. Last night, saw that the city of Vallejo is considering declaring bankruptcy.


    Can't help but notice how this trend of spend, spend, spend and let the taxpayers pick up the bill or suffer with absolutely NO accountability by the so-called leaders began with BushCo....Actually the senior BuSh and his son, Neil, with the S&L loan scandals. Seems Reagonics DOES work in a screwy kind of way...be a scantless SOB, rob the taxpayer, don't be accountable, etc., etc. HAS "trickled down" to local governments.

    HMMM! Cities Top officials get a "Pay Raise" and the common folks get stuck in the butt with a utility rate hike! Does anyone else see a connection here?

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?
