As we approach the Nov. 8 general election, I wanted to speak to my friends, family and neighbors not as your mayor, but as a concerned citizen of Turlock.

It doesn't matter that the U.S. Department of Justice essentially cleared Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson, who said he shot Brown in self-defense. Facts cannot dent the popular narrative of white cops shooting black men because police are racists.
