New report shows budget impact of rising firefighting costs

A new report shows that as the cost of fighting forest fires has rapidly increased over the last 20 years, the budgets for other forest programs, including those that can help prevent and mitigate fire damage, have substantially shrunk. The Forest Service's firefighting appropriation has rapidly risen as a proportion of the Forest Service's overall budget, increasing from 16 percent in 1995 to 42 percent today, forcing cuts in other budget areas.

Time to bring real reform to VA

Getting in the room to see the doctor is the hardest part. That is what I hear most often from the tens of thousands of Central Valley veterans. Long wait times for appointments and lengthy commutes prevent them from accessing the care that they have earned through their service. In Turlock, a veteran looking for specialty care faces a 90 mile journey to the nearest full service Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Palo Alto. This trip is especially difficult for elderly veterans or those with limited financial resources.

Immigration is American

Conservatives rightly point out that America is a nation of laws. No one should be exempt. That's why many oppose amnesty and other paths to citizenship for illegal immigrants who are here now.

Why I can’t support Turlock’s Measure B, yet

"He is anti-roads." "He is anti-tax." "He is too Republican." All are false claims that will be waged against my campaign for mayor of Turlock because of my current criticism of Measure B, a proposed half-cent sales tax for the next seven years to fund Turlock road improvements.

Measure B is right for Turlock

As a longtime resident of Turlock, I have witnessed the increasing deterioration of Turlock roads. The limited funds from state and federal sources only provide funding for temporary repairs on a very limited basis and are mostly directed at specific projects such as the recent pavement improvements to Monte Vista Avenue and Canal Drive. The citizens of Turlock deserve better and passage of Measure B will be the first step to ensure that Turlock roads are fixed.
