Elk Grove City Council member Sophia Scherman was in attendance at Wednesday’s Lodi City Council meeting. When Councilman Alan Nakanishi asked why she was in attendance, she said she was “just visiting.”
Turned out, she did a little more than just visit. She helped a Spanish-speaking woman translate a complaint on her utility bill while she was there too.
Conjecture on my part, but Scherman may have also been looking for a little face time with Lodi leaders as she makes her 2012 run for State Assembly District 9, which includes Lodi.
