"Yes" on G! Yes on G because it is improving our city.

Measure G will collect the money it needs ahead of G's spending. Measure G is planning for the future of Lodi by collecting a 1/4 cent sales tax over the next 10 years gaining interest on the funds while strategically funding worthy facilities. That's only 25 cents per $100 taxable goods (no tax on groceries)! Actually, it is the visitors to our city, driving through Lodi and stopping to eat at our restaurants, coming to the Street Fair and visiting the city for our wines that are going to pay for our paramedics, our fire stations, our aquatic center and the indoor recreation center. The citizens will pay their share but most of the money is coming from out of town. The oversight committee is there to be sure our money goes to these Measure G projects, not into some councilman's pet project.

"Yes" on G. It is about time that we look toward our kids. Obesity is at epidemic levels and an aquatic center and an indoor recreation center are desperately needed. The Lodi City Swim Club currently rents from the LUSD. These kids are dedicated - swimming year round no matter the weather (except lightning.) It is time to pass Measure G so that the youth of this city can use these facilities to play, get fit, learn the life skills of hard work, commitment, team spirit and how to compete fairly. Plus, the aquatic center can be used for health and wellness programs such as physical therapy and treatment for arthritis and rheumatism. There will always be something that the council feels is more important than our children's health and well-being. Vote "yes" on G.
