Johnson and Mounce were both successful in their re-election campaigns.

    All right, read my post again. I wanted to know what you thought about those contributor's to Mounce's campaign which include bankers, former council members, real estate, unions, contractor's and gool ol boyz. People who you bash everyday in your posts. That's all.

    obbserver, why does it bother you and Brother reality so much about my opinion. You tgwo never have one, only obnoxious remarks trying to make yourself feel better than everyone else. I see many whose names are not on there on both sides that are those "shadowy" multiple $99 contributors. I notice the bean man from the planning commission appointed by Johnson donated $999 to Johnson and a nifty $100 to Mounce? What's with that? Payback for that appointment, maybe? And I don't see diede Construction? Now I know why those $99 checks don't need to be reported. And, observer, just who are those people I loathe? Why don't you tell me? From the looks of the totals, there were hundreds of unaccounted for $99 contributions. I could just look at the names and number of $99 contributions and who they came from and be able to start a databank of corrupted people who're afraid to show their contributions to their owners. Payback must be great. Nor do I see Master Gillespie nor Browman on Johnson's list Are they keeping their distance from him for some particular reason? Johnson $4000 in $99 unaccounted for donors.

    Shall we start looking at Bob Johnson's contributor's also. Looks like there are lot of construction companys, civil engineers, realtor's and contractor's. You could say it's pay back for Johnson, and RDA but, you make up your own mind.

    I belive blue collar Labor is what builds a better community. And read the headlines today Rich cheating Business men and cheating lawyers cost this city millions yearly only to raise your bills so you can blame Labor.. Look at the cheifs not the indians

    if my additoin is correct it looks like 50% of mounces money comes from either labor unions or a grocer who is heavily labor oriented

    It's interesting to see that Loadeye has not commented on this story. I'm especially interested in his comments on Mounce's contributor's since several of them are the same ones he loathes so vehemently.

    Cogito, your right people can be bought to be on City Council. Just look at Galt,s Council Barbara Payne, Randy Shelton, and Darryl Clare are all put into our Council by Devlopers and Delta Greens. And they don't make any bones about it!!!!

    There is more to the RDA then people understand. Mounce has been known for her ability to read through the lines and see who realy benifits "Rich investors or community" I think she just wants to make the best choice with what she see's in our future. Good question, maybe send here an email for her side.

    If Ms Mounce is "in this" "to better our quality of living in Lodi" why is she against the RDA? This is not a slam, just a position I've been wondering about for awhile.

    If we only had 4 more like Mounce on this coucil that didnt have some personal gain from their seat. She is in this for the right reason, to better our quality of living in Lodi.Thanks again....

    who gives a "S"

    I noticed that the largest contribution for either candidate was for $3500 to Mounce from Food4Less and the Rancho. Well, that explains her "no" stance on Super WalMart. Looks like you can buy certain people on the council.
