We need to vote in every election

I am so grateful to see that Measure S passed so overwhelmingly. It extended the sales tax surcharge to support the Stanislaus County Library system for the next 12 years. Now, we can maintain what is in place, and still plan for more services into the next decade or so. The citizens of Turlock will enjoy their branch library well into the next decade.

City Council is not responsibly planning for citizens’ protection

Approximately 30 years ago, this city had 55 sworn personnel, which totaled the entire police force, from administration to officers in the field. The city population at that time was approximately 35,000. We presently have a population which has doubled, to 70,000 plus, a 100 percent increase. However, the entire police force now only has 80 sworn personnel. This is only a 70 percent increase for enforcing the law and protecting the people!
