Ed Miller, who is a member of Citizens in Action, the local Tea Party organization, has been keeping a watchful eye on the city of Lodi's strained budget.

While the Tea Party has drawn considerable attention for its national politics and activism, Miller has made a difference at the local level.

    I am proud to be associated with Ed Miller. If you would like to join his "cause" or get involved in any other facet of our state or local government, please go to www.lodicitizensinaction.com. There, you can sign up for our email newsletters (kept to a minimum- we do not just forward the same emails everyone else gets every day) and you can find out how to contact Ed yourself on our "Resources/ Contact Us" page. You can also visit our "Property Rights/Personal Freedoms" page to get information about those subjects. We invite anyone from any political party, that wants to promote 1) Fiscal Responsibility 2) Limited Government 3) Support of the Free markets. Ed can't do it alone!!

    We appreciate your effort to convince the council to award the surface water treatment plant jobs to private enterprise. Too bad they chose to do it their way instead.
    You may know, we were told this plant is needed because our ground water is overdrafted by some 200,000 acre feet annually. You may also know this plant will process about 6,000 acre feet of river water annually---just 3% of the overdraft.
    I call this plant Lodi's bridge to nowhere because:
    * It will have virtually no effect on the ground water over draft problem.
    * It is extremely expensive and though we may never know all the costs of all the projects associated with it ------- debt service on the loan, the Mills Avenue dig, planning and legal costs, the raw hook up to WID, clearing the construction site and building the plant and cost of the water, plant operations and so on, I believe when all is said and done, this is a two hundred million dollar "bridge to nowhere".

    We need folks like Mr. Miller keeping an eye on spending. Let's face it, our state is broke, largely because the Legislature operates outside the view of ordinary citizens. Government caters to the "squeeky wheels" - whether it's labor unions, big business or other special interests. Ed's got his eye on our local government and i for one, am grateful.
