Partnership job development programs bring in nearly 5,000 jobs in 2013

The San Joaquin Partnership, a private, non-profit economic development organization marketing San Joaquin County, CA, attracted seven new businesses, expanded six and retained one, according to its annual report, presented last week by President and CEO Michael Ammann, at the annual breakfast.

The annual Report is now online at the San Joaquin Partnership website. "We still see the same trends," Ammann said. "The trends of folks migrating east out of the East Bay and out of the Bay Area." "This manufacturing trend investment should continue with the implementation of "California Competes" incentives in 2014 that are focused on attracting manufacturing jobs," Ammann writes in the annual report.

Stockton man heads to prison for supplying medical marijuana


STOCKTON -- The Stockton man convicted of federal drug charges after supplying medical marijuana to area dispensaries leaves Thursday for his three-year prison sentence.

Matt Davies, who is married with two young daughters, said he wasn't breaking the law by growing and distributing marijuana to dispensaries because it is allowed by California state law. He said he didn't expect to be pursued by the federal government after Pres. Obama said he wouldn't interfere with state medical marijuana laws.

"The federal government made promises," Davies said. "They went back on those promises and I'm a casualty of their change in politics."

Davies, and two others, were arrested for growing marijuana in large facilities and supplying seven medical marijuana dispensaries. He plead guilty rather than fight the charge and risk a much longer sentence.

San Joaquin district attorney loses retaliation lawsuit


STOCKTON - San Joaquin County and its district attorney, James Willett , lost a federal civil case this week in which Willett was accused by a former co-worker of discrimination and retaliation.

Former investigator Janis Trulsson accused Willett of passing her over for a promotion in favor of someone else. She charged both retaliation and gender discrimination in the suit. A jury on Monday ruled in her favor on the retaliation issue. She did not succeed on the discrimination allegation.

The jury awarded Trulsson more than $2 million in past earnings lost, future earnings lost, and pain and suffering. The trial lasted about three weeks.

San Joaquin County counsel Kristen Hegge said Tuesday her office finds the damage award "excessive and unjustified" and said the office is considering an appeal.

Willett is scheduled to retire from the district attorney's office later this year.


Vernalis Interchange completed - financed by local quarries working "together"

Vernalis Interchange completed - financed by local quarries working "together"

Former "death trap" now safe for truckers and motorists Ribbon-cutting ceremonies were held this morning for the State Route 132/Bird Road Interchange in Vernalis. The ceremony culminated 20 "years in the making", celebrating a new interchange, with related highway improvements done through cooperation of competitors, at State Route 132/Bird Road. Once called a "death trap" because of the necessity for making a dangerous left hand turn, especially in foggy weather, from Bird Road onto SR 132 it was hailed this morning as an improved safety route for both truckers and motorists. Several gravel quarries are located in the Vernalis area, due to significant aggregate deposits that blanket the area near State Route 132/Bird Road. The prior intersection could not accommodate the current and projected trucks needed to transport these resources to market. The materials at these quarries serve the construction industry throughout the greater San Joaquin Valley and San Francisco Bay Area.
