It took nearly a month, but Democrat Cathleen Galgiani has finally been declared the winner of the 5th State Senate race against Republican Bill Berryhill.

“I certified it this morning,” Austin Erdman, San Joaquin County’s registrar of voters, said on Monday.

Berryhill, who spent most of his life in Ceres and moved to Stockton for the Senate election, was ahead of Galgiani on Election Day, Nov. 6, but Galgiani dominated throughout the rest of November as elections departments in three counties counted so-called “provisional ballots.” These included vote-by-mail ballots taken in person to a polling place, voters casting ballots for an incorrect district and others that were damaged.

The district includes Lodi and San Joaquin County, Galt and portions of Stanislaus County.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
