    Sorry, my 9:04 blog ended up on the wrong topic.

    Is Mr. Oakley going to be one of those "interim" hires that's going to be permanant? I notice from the long line of his last half dozen or more positions that he's become very adept with the redevelopment instituted in those cities. Is this a plan to start stacking the deck with RDA specialists like manager King? Why have we lost so many good long term members of our management team in the last 3 years or so?

    My exact thoughts, Robb. The grand jury inquisition is far from over. There are those accusations that will have to be answered in 90 days for the grand jury and until those explanations are reviewed and made public by the grand jury, all that will happen in the interim will just be sugar coated. There's a possibility of the grand jury recommending prosecutions to the DA if these explanations show up any kind of corruption and any of the back door dealings violating the Brown act can be proven. This Delta college mess and the Lodi, Manteca and Mountain House fleecing of the citizens is far from over.

    Congratulations, Lieutenant Dan, for your hard work and perserverance in finally getting this valuable program instituted here in Lodi. It's been long overdue for our homeless veterans to be able to get help with counseling and housing. And their will be substance and alcohol abuse programs for them along with mental services and health also. Thank you, Dan, for being an important part of the help for the homeless veterans, addicts, alcoholics, mental cases and people just plain down and out on their luck. God Bless You.
