Did Lodi really need an analyst to handle press releases and other communications? We've expressed skepticism. Sometimes public information employees do more to block or impede the free flow of information than hasten it. That said, if the city needed to make this hire, they chose well. Jeff Hood, formerly The Record's bureau chief in Lodi, is bright, articulate and fair-minded. He is also, he says, committed to making government as transparent as possible. That's an admirable goal, one we whole-heartedly share.
