What Bert Has To Say About Stockton-Lodi Metro Area

Stockton, an inland port at the end of a ship channel accessing the San Francisco Bay, is a somewhat gritty Central California transportation, distribution and agricultural center. Despite an attempted comeback with some downtown renewal and public relations efforts, and pleasant suburbs near the University of the Pacific campus, the area remains generally unattractive and working class in character. Crime rates (particularly violent crime) remain very high, but the employment picture has improved somewhat.
