“When we made that 17 percent increase, it was to stop the hemorrhaging and the bleeding. We had high hopes that we could go a long time without any increases, and that’s what happened. We went nearly a decade without one.”

It could be Thanksgiving or later before anyone knows whether incumbent Rep. Jerry McNerney or challenger David Harmer is the winner in their hotly contested race.

It could be weeks, too, before a winner is declared for the third Lodi City Council seat, with incumbent Larry Hansen and challenger John Johnson separated by just 75 votes.

    Doug... I know the unions are really bad... but.... I know that no body makes you do anything... you are too independent. As far as who attends to whose business, I recall in the near past, you made comments about Manuel and I... made me your business... I was just returning the favor as I thought you felt it was appropriate. Am I wrong?
    In addition, I didn’t think it was any of your business or appropriate to question her honesty and character as she seems to be genuine and sincere in her blogs. That’s why I saw it as an unwarranted attack by you. Doug, you always seem eager to dish it out but ultra sensitive when someone confronts you about your dishings.

    Darrell, get lost! Why do you make my business automatically your business? I only askeda question of her and she didn't seem to want to respond, did she? Why would she be questioning whether others votes have been tabulated anyway? Please answer for her or shut the heck up.

    Doug, just curious. Kim seems to be a good natured constructive blogger who is polite and mostly shares her opinion without antagonism most times. Why do you attack her so often in such a derogatory manner? I can understand you attacking me as I am not shy about dishing it out ... but Kim? You seem like a bully.

    Ms. Parigoris, how would you know if their votes haven't been counted? Were you checking on others status on the website that notifies you whether or not your ballot has been counted or not? I would assume they either told you personally or you just plain snooped. Last nights news reported there were possibly 50K ballots remaining to be counted, but that figure was revised to be as many as 120K. It'll be the full 28 days state law allows for final verification before any final results will be fully tabulated and certified. If that information holds true, there could be possibilities of other results turned upside down, too, couldn't there?
