This is an open letter to Lodi Mayor Alan Nakanishi.
Mayor Nakanishi, I think you are in a position to right a wrong. The previous Lodi City Council came up with a way to force any tax increases, a new firehouse or whatever against the objections of the people of Lodi.
They did this by requiring that you send in a letter of objection — opposing — to the city clerk. There must be over half of the population responding by mail. On the coldest day this would never happen, and they knew that.
How it passed by the city council I don't know, but it's your chance to right a wrong perpetrated against the citizens of Lodi. I am sure the people would appreciate you taking care of this. Using loaded dice in a game against the citizens of Lodi is just not fair — maybe in the city of Bell, but not here in Lodi.
