During his 2015 participation in the annual the Sacramento Metro Chamber of Commerce's Capital to Capital lobbying trip Elk Grove Vice Mayor Steve Ly blew off his responsibilities to Elk Grove taxpayers and went golfing with a Laotian diplomat.

During the April 27, 2016 City Council meeting Ly discussed his activities and did not indicate he had a golf outing this year. Rather, Ly said he had a meeting on an unspecified date at the Laotian embassy with their Ambassador to the United States regarding a medical mission to that developing country.

While commendable, we hope Ly did not forsake Elk Grove taxpayers and once again skipped team lobbying efforts as part of the air quality team as he was assigned. We will have to wait until next year when he files his 2016 Statement of Economic Interests to see if Ly is once again using taxpayers money for his own purposes or if he met with the Ambassador prior to scheduled lobbying duties.

This makes perfect sense. Everyone in the world knows that Elk Grove is a "medical mecca", so of course other countries are going to seek us out for medical help. Duh. Besides, everyone knows it's "Grow time" in Elk Grove, and the abundance of grow houses in Elk Grove for harvesting medical marijuana is in the news a lot. And the surnames of those busted pot farmers seems to be regionally located from Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam.

I see a good opportunity for a Sister City somewhere in Laos.

"medical mecca" in Elk Grove ='s "Mecca Natural Medicine". Here I was thinking it was SOCCER CITY & OLYMPIC CITY. Shows you what I know about the goings on in this city. Send Vice-Mayor Ly to DC and he gets on the wrong bus and heads to a medical mission for Laos. Looks like we wasted that dollar. He needs to stay at home and do some more of those neighborhood cleanups with the Mayor and cook some weiners. They're like two peas in a pod who've made split-pea soup out of the whole mess. Big egos with small talents.
