so stockton is so great. now don't forget to tell everyone, move to stockton, better get life insurance, practice dogging bullets, put triple locks on the doors and windows, better walk your children to school (gangs like to beat up childrens), shoot and mutilate pets, there are alot of pedophiles, rapist, murderers, arsonists, did i forget some, sorry. i would never recommend an unsafe environment, i would not want to be responsible, for someones death, heartbreak, any evil to happen to them. until the infestation is cleaned up.

Stockton is a great City to raise a family.

In Stockton, Municipal Bankruptcy will force rational adjustments of the ridiculously high pension/benefit extortion schemes.

Stockton is fixing their problems so their kids won't inherit a nightmare. San Fran is NOT.

Do Stockton families care more about their children's futures than San Fran families?

YES! San Fran Unioncrats have buried the City in unsustainable debt obligations.

i'm sorry about san fran, my concerned is about a small town stockton, compared to LA, new york even san fran, to have the “reputation of the “2nd” in the nation for criminal corruption.” (infestation). have you involved yourself. have you gone to any committees. have you spoken to the board or the elected. how have you committed yourself. have you questioned their ethics. have you worked with the police.
we did, all of the above, and it didn't stop there. but the board and city elected, ignored us, they were arrogant and stubborn to listen. we told them, years ago that this was going to happen. they REFUSED to listen. they were too busy with their titles. they cut our first line of protection the police. their pay, their benefits. the board and city elected, started to be a GHETTO LANDLORD. when it came time to fix something, their BROKE. they have been collecting money for years. they have cut everybody, but something interesting, the board and the city elected never have cut their pay, bonuses, even their benefits. are they trying to say, they are above all that. can you make a difference, i hope you can. we tried, you have no idea how we tried. we were there when they started this way. we warned them. THEY REFUSED to listen.
can you make a difference, then DO IT, not with pictures, but with action. i hope they will listen to you. honestly. i wish you the best, when you do.
