The Turlock mayor position requires an individual that is committed, understands fiscal accountability, and has the necessary leadership experience to keep Turlock moving forward. The top elected office in Turlock is not a training position and taking 100 days to figure out what is going on is not acceptable. Turlock needs a mayor that is ready to provide leadership today and that candidate is Mike Brem.

It was my privilege to serve on the City Council, as well as be Turlock's representative on the predecessor to StanCog. StanCog is the transportation planning agency for Stanislaus County. There has been some controversy about the effect on Measure B of Stanislaus County passing a separate transportation tax in the future. It is simple Measure B will terminate if the County passes a separate measure in the future. Every past proposal for a county transportation tax required a major portion of the funds to be allocated to each city for road maintenance. Thus if Measure B is terminated ...
This week marks the six-month milestone in the statewide campaign to put the world's most beloved beagle on an official California license plate, and help generate needed funds for the state's museums at the same time. Since late January, over 4,200 Californians have pre-ordered an official Snoopy license plate-which is 56 percent of the 7,500 applications required by the State before the new plates go into production. The license plate features a reproduction of an iconic original Snoopy drawing by Peanuts cartoonist Charles Schulz and the phrase "museums are for everyone."
At last month's California gubernatorial debate, Republican hopeful Neel Kashkari praised Gov. Jerry Brown and Attorney General Kamala Harris for using their discretion not to appeal a court ruling that overturned the state's same-sex marriage ban.

The suit is named after Beatriz Vergara, one of nine students who sued to eliminate the state's teacher tenure system.
The Turlock Fire Department works hard to educate the youth in our community about fire prevention, but this question is directed at the adults living in Turlock: When was the last time you tested the smoke alarms in your home? Was it last week, last month, or last year? If you are like most people, you may not even remember the last time you tested them. Smoke alarms have become such a common feature in U.S. homes that they are often taken for granted and aren't tested or maintained as they should be.

Gary Soiseth recently volunteered to spend a day speaking with high school students about his experiences in Afghanistan and his commitment to public service. After hearing him speak, I felt that any community would be fortunate to have him as a leader. He is intelligent, well-spoken, and most importantly, he is passionate. As a teacher, I value his desire to help the youth of tomorrow discover their potential, and I applaud his efforts to help them achieve their goals. Gary's ability to connect with the youth of today will help foster the generation of tomorrow.

Turlock is a community on the move, growing jobs, attracting new economic development and emerging as one of the best places to live and work in the Central Valley.

This is why the leadership choices Turlock voters make in November are so important. This is why, after conducting extensive interviews with all the candidates, the Turlock Chamber ...
