Council's empty campaign finance reform ordinance

How to explain the utter emptiness of the Turlock government's recent campaign reform gesture? Consider the backdrop. The recent farmer's market flap disrupted the mayor's scheme to ram a wealthy political donor's for-profit operation into the downtown site so successfully cultivated by the Turlock Certified Farmer's Market, and gave a black eye to the image he needs for personal political advancement. The episode in turn invigorated a TIN CUP campaign that likewise stands to complicate his good ol' boy approach to running the city and thus his career plans.

Reflecting on Turlock’s year of reforms

Reforms in government are never easy, but they're often necessary. As the great grandson of some of Turlock's first farmers and residents, I'm committed to preserve our history as a small, close-knit community. As mayor, I'm also committed to reforms that acknowledge our need to be accountable, unbiased and transparent in how Turlock conducts business now and into the future.

It looks like the City Council is supporting private business with public funds

On June 25, I parked my car on Main Street in front of the Vintage Lounge and was told by a young girl that I had to pay $5 as the space was for valet parking only. I explained to her that it was a public street and I would not pay for valet parking on a public street and that she should call her employer and have him explain to me how legally he could charge a fee.
