First of all, I want to say a tremendous “Thank You” to all of the positive comments, the letters to the editor, and the many people who took the time to sign our online petition (there is still room for more signatures–see the link to the right). It is heartening to see all of the friends of Lodi who love our city and our farmland, and want to preserve the unique characteristics of both by keeping them separate! Your support helps us to keep fighting for what is good for Lodi. Especially now when so many people are struggling, it is so important to have local food and produce that wasn’t trucked in from thousands of miles away. It is less expensive, more healthy, and shows that we really care about our food safety for us and for our kids and grandkids in the future.
Since there are legal issues going on, there isn’t too much I can say right now. But I can say that all legal efforts are being made to keep the Strawberry in Lodi! As soon as I am able to say more, all of you will be the first to know–and there even may be some homework assignments! One thing I can tell you is that the City Council did adopt a resolution to continue with the pre-zoning process to take my home; I am not sure how that fits in with the legal order to stop this annexation, but I am a strawberry, not a lawyer!
Thank you, Lodi!
