Court decision brings more turmoil

Court decision brings more turmoil

"White continues to serve as thorn in side of City Hall." Says the Record, which is the towns editorial.

They must not have the updated suit, with myself, and 4 other citizens, and as mentioned Ralph White.

This year is the most momentous in recent election years, in every race, there's usually a winner and a loser. This Presidential election, can set us apart from our war-mongors "W" family.

Ralph Lee White won one on Tuesday; Stocktonians may end up being the losers.

Not because the former councilman and perennial mayoral candidate may ultimately scuttle the tenure of Mayor Ann Johnston. Or that she might lose the November election to challenger Anthony Silva because of the doubts White has raised. None of that.

Stocktonians may lose because this isn't about what's good for Stockton. It's about what's good for White, apparently still irritated - and, frankly, understandably so - about the citywide voting for district council seats instituted years ago to oust him from the council.

It's about being a thorn in the side of City Hall, not that that's always bad.

A federal bankruptcy court judge said last week that White's challenge to Johnston's legitimacy as a candidate can go forward. White contends that since Johnston served two terms on the City Council before becoming mayor - there was a break in her service - under the city charter she is ineligible.
