When one thinks of a hopping nightlife, Turlock isn't exactly the city that comes to mind. Rooted deep in a tradition of agriculture and suburban lifestyles, the almond capital of the world hasn't been traditionally known for a good place to paint the town red.
Earlier last week, the Turlock Irrigation District race wasn't looking to be much a battle for incumbent directors Ron Macedo and Joe Alamo, both of whom are looking to regain their seats on the TID board.
The Turlock Irrigation District Board of Directors will look eerily similar come 2014, as the filing period ended for the Nov. 5 elections on Friday and only the incumbents filed candidacy papers. Current directors Ron Macedo, Joe Alamo and Charles Fernandes will all be running as incumbents for their respective divisions.
