She claimed the loss of state and local tax deductions would ...

Tax Cuts and Jobs Act a fairer, simpler tax code

Valley residents are taxed too much, the United States is falling behind other countries competitively, we continue to lose American jobs overseas, and we are over $20 trillion in debt. Last week, the House took a big step toward addressing these issues by introducing a tax reform bill that will reduce the tax burden of individuals and families in all tax brackets, make our businesses more competitive, and grow our economy. If passed and signed into law this year, this bill will provide much-needed tax relief for Americans starting January 1.

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.
