From reading Letters to the Editor and emails, the public wants transparency in their government. To improve flow of information and increase transparency, I have set up three town-hall meetings this year.
I have scheduled the first informational town-hall meeting for Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m. at the City Council Chambers at Carnegie Forum.
The subjects will include the Lodi City Council, city commissions, governance and administration. Lodi utility rates, water, sewer and electricity will also be discussed.
If you want any specific questions answered, please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. There will also be time for questions and comments by the public.
I invite you to the meeting, which I believe will be worthwhile.
Mayor of Lodi
