Ed Miller

“The unions, the city management and the council all have an understanding of this item, but nobody else does. Frankly, this proposal should have seen the light of day via a public hearing, instead of appearing to be slipped under the radar.”

A Lodi resident who has kept a close watch on how the city spends its money for years chastised the Lodi City Council on Wednesday, asking why the process used to give employees one-time bonuses was not made public.

Ed Miller spoke during the public comment portion of the council’s Wednesday night meeting, saying he was not complaining about the decision itself, which was approved at a January meeting.

    "under the radar"

    How low can they go? Secretive or evasive maneuvers can only be detected by direct observation.

    While most of you sit passively on your sofa, FAUX News blasting, I-Pad in hand and busily typing your angst away...

    Who's regularly attending these council meetings and asking the tough questions? Our "Watcher of the Sky" is participating in the local governing process.

    Folks, I would like to give a big shout out for Ed Miller.

    Ed Miller is local activist, guest columnist for the Lodi News Sentinel and coordinator of the area TEA Party.

    Find out more by attending a Lodi TEA Party general meeting held the fourth Monday of each month, 6:30 p.m. at the United Congregational Church, 701 S. Hutchins Street, Lodi.
