More than $22,000 was spent on the Measure C campaign, the overwhelming majority of that amount by those in favor of the measure, according to county records.

Measure C would have enabled the North San Joaquin Water Conservation District to pursue a fee to recharge the area's diminished groundwater basin. The measure was rejected by 68 percent of the voters in Tuesday's election.

    Oh my- Look at who tried to buy our votes! There are few surprises on the YES list. A saw a couple of big names with deep pockets and pennies on YES on C. I wonder what cards they have hidden up their sleeves?

    And, if possible, Mr. Quinn, an explanation for the treasurer of this dysfunctional water board making a payment to his own business? These are the reasons that the dysfunctional parties connected with this Measure C campaign and dysfunctional water board are not to be trusted to any extent. Thank you, Mr. Bryan Pilkington for making this large transfer of political contributions public. What would one expect of another of Lodi's long line of questionable mayors?

    June 12, 2010Mr. Guinn, In today's story regarding contributors to Measure C, I would like you to make a correction. The FPPC form 460 discloses all the correct information that you used to write your report. You listed all the Monetary Contributions to Yes on C. You listed all monetary contribution for No on C, however, made a significant error regarding Bryan Pilkington's contributions. Bryan Pilkington made Non Monetary Contributions, not monetary contributions. Please review the FPPC form 460 again and you will find Bryan Pilkington didn't make any monetary contributions. I know the Lodi News wouldn't want to mislead the public on the Measure C issue. I will await your reply, via e-mail and in the newspaper.Sincerely, Bryan Pilkington, Director NSJWCDPS: Did you forget to mention Phil Pennino the Treasurer of Yes on C, made payments from Yes on C to Pennino & Assoc. for $7,803.00?
