Turlock needs to 'Choose Civility' once again

In the past, I have not been a big fan of slogans. I just feel they're kind of cheesy, even the ones that are meant for serious purposes. I find it hard to believe that a group of World War II American service members about to discuss classified plans for D-Day in the local cafe stopped because they saw a "Loose Lips Sink Ships" poster.

Soiseth: Historic vote places Turlock on path toward reliable drinking water

Last July, while campaigning for mayor I went door-to-door to share my vision for a stronger, bolder Turlock.

It is bittersweet to be leaving.
