How can you think about building when we don't have water, home prices are stagnant, schools are going down hill and more crime then ever? Serious shooting up Tracy Mall? When will it stop you don't build your way out of this cut back on spending . Create Great paying jobs. The same old crap coming out of the mouths of the progressive liberal politicians. Learn from your mistakes. Time for a serious change. The people have to stop voting for the same clowns to run the city.

You three guys cannot be TRUE Republicans. When you blast politicians at least have the guts to blast them for what the problems are. And at least have the guts to get your facts right.

Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, our City cut more spending than most other cities. Stockton went bankrupt spending money. Manteca spent more money and still has less business revenue than Tracy. And Tracy taxes are still lower here in Tracy.

Additionally, keep in mind that home prices are NOT stagnant. They are rising an average of $20k per year over the last five years and that is increasing. But that's pretty much statewide. As is education and crime issues are also statewide issues.

To blame school issues on the city of Tracy is like blaming the POTUS for the water shortage in Kalifornia. The schools were supposed to get California gambling proceeds and were supposed to have improved. We gambled our own children's future and like Pete R., we lost.

Additionally, to attempt to extort $2 million dollars out of a local business, on our communit'ies newspaper's website is clearly not a Republican way of doing business. Any real Republican would not chase local business owners away.
