    Proposition Positions on 2020 Ballot

    The Lodi District Chamber of Commerce, along with approximately 50 other Chambers statewide, advocate legislatively for our members at a local, county, state and nationwide level. This past week, the Chamber has interviewed candidates running for Lodi City Council, State Assembly, Congressional Representative, LUSD School Board, Delta Board of Trustees, and County Supervisors. You can read more by clicking on each race. In addition to endorsing candidates, we lobby with the assistance and guidance of the California Chamber of Commerce to fight erroneous bills that would have a negative (or even detrimental) impact on business.
