Well, it’s that time of year again when all the campaign signs pop up like weeds. The frightening sign this year is the one that says “Munson for county supervisor.” Does he really think the citizens of Lodi buy his story about “I am here to serve”?

Does Munson really think the citizens of Lodi have forgotten that he was just denied by the county the ability to build another project in our farmland? Sounds like sour grapes to me.

Does he really think the citizens of Lodi will pay him over $100,000 of your county tax dollars to be an elected county supervisor with zero experience? I certainly hope not.

Does he think the citizens of Lodi have forgotten redevelopment? Redevelopment would’ve helped pay for Munson’s newest business in Downtown and paid him incentives (thousands of dollars) just to do it! Talk about a self-serving guy. Or the fact that the city was paying him roughly $8,000 rent every month for a building not worth half of the money. What a sweetheart deal for his campaign contributions to council members.

Does he really think that he could fill the shoes of Ken Vogel? Mr. Vogel has been one of the finest county supervisors Lodi could ever ask for. Mr. Vogel also worked tirelessly on water issues and things that matter to the citizens of Lodi.

Does Mr. Munson really think that he could do the full-time job of the county supervisor and manage Wine and Roses, and Rosewood? It would be simply impossible for him to do all those things. He actually said he could do the job of a county supervisor while he sits in his office at Wine and Roses, or even Rosewood.

If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you.

I will be voting for anyone other than Munson. I hope you will join me.
