“Many who run for city council don’t have medical insurance, so this helps them. If you want to save money, get old guys.”

“For new council members, it’s good for them. It’s good for them to learn. So I can understand why they are important.”

“Lodi and Adventist Health will be a terrific combination. I know personally the quality of work Adventist Health does, and it is impressive.”

“As a city, we can ask General Mills if we wait to raise rates for two years, will they stay?”

Alan Nakanishi didn't just win the Lodi City Council race in November. He was the top vote-getter from the north to the south to the east to the west in Lodi. The doctor and former assemblyman won every single precinct in Lodi. His lowest precinct percentage was 20.2 percent while his highest was 24.9 percent.

"Alan dominated this election. It's just huge compared to everyone else," said council challenger John Johnson.

    Josh, you're so right. I actually ate my words and through those I know and kepp in contact with, there's nothing but positive written and said about Councilman Nakanishi. Good Luck, sir.

    I would like to join Doug’s sentiments and welcome Alan Nakinishi as well... If he is pro business as Josh states, I will celebrate that as business needs all the help it can get in a state like California. However, encouraging business development that takes into consideration quality jobs and the welfare and interests of Lodians in general is equally important… combining the two interests so both win would be welcome.

    Doug, glad you came around. Prior to the election you continuously criticized Dr. Nakanishi as being too old and one of the "good ol boy's". I believe you will the Doctor's politics to be quite conservative and pro-business. Glad to see him receive such overall approval.

    Welcome, councilman Mr. Alan Nakanishi. My research shows you to be a very intelligent and common sensical person with compassion for the citizens of Lodi and their best interests. I'm looking forward to you, along with councilwoman Mouncee to restore some reasoning and issues that concern ALL citizens of Lodi, and not just those who are well-connected, wealthy, influential or closely connected to the wine industry, realtors, developers, contractors or business associates and their friends and partners. It's time that a council representative with longtime knowledge of Lodi politics and real thoughts and ideas to move the city of Lodi forward in a positive direction, can add some much needed wisdom and intelligenge to correct the ugly decisions made the last 9 years.
