The Galt City Council has set a special public meeting next week to discuss Councilman Curt Campion’s request for health care benefits as an elected official.

It’s a request that at least one council member feels may be improper, because Campion already gets money for health care under a severance agreement he struck with the city when he left employment in 2011.

    Mr. Jacobs, the part time shysters on Lodi city council voted themselves $13,000 to $17,000 annual health care plans, most of which opt for the cash due to their greed and shouldn't be entitled to one red cent of health care for the few paltry hours they claim they spend on city time. Most of their work is done on their laptops, and now brand new Ipads for the Lodi city council at an absurd price to apparently supplement their laptops. And for a little burg that can't afford six thousand dollars to repair the skate park. Those pads cost the town nearly that much. But I guess when they travel they don't have to lug that heavy old laptop around. It must be nice to make your own rules and delete those you don't like as the game goes along. Lodi city councils have a stellar track record when it comes to pandering and helping themselves to the government welfare fund at every opportunity they want.

    Almost all of these kind of people are crooks. They know it, I know, the citizens know it, and God certainly knows it!

    Good luck with that...
