Francisco Trujillo, a representative of the Community Partnership for Families, stood before the Lodi City Council on Wednesday and pleaded for funds to provide food, health care and basic services for families on the Eastside, several of whom were seated in the audience at Carnegie Forum.

The council members said their hands were tied, because CPF didn't apply for any money.

    Oh ya and how EMBARRASSING the city borrowed $26 million (26,000,000) from the utililty co to sue there own businesses for that dirty water fiasco! They wont borrow any to help us, to support our good positive causes- just to hand it off to their lawyers so the lawyers can take more from the little guy. GRRRRRR! U know how far even just $1 million would go?! And they tell us, dont use extension cords- if u see your neighbors running cords out to eachother report them bcuz helping one another when times are bad is a crime. It should be a crime to turn off someones power bcuz they misunderstood the due date then go the next day to post their 5 day to vacate notice so the whole right b4 stealing your home right out from under u. That neighborhood knows
