Golf subsidy: Thumbs up or thumbs down?

The City Council will meet next Tuesday night and after hashing things out once more presumably pass Stockton’s 2017-18 budget, which takes effect July 1.

Mayor Michael Tubbs has been questioning for months the city’s inclusion of a six-figure subsidy for its Swenson and Van Buskirk golf courses. This morning, Tubbs’ office announced the mayor and Councilmen Dan Wright and Jesus Andrade will hold a town hall meeting at Van Buskirk from 5:30-7 this evening to discuss the matter.

Nothing like advance notice, eh?
