SB 9 puts lives of criminals above safety

I am a believer in redemption and second chances. However, I also believe there should be consequences for those who commit a crime, especially those who commit cold-blooded murder. Redemption doesn't mean escape from consequences, and those who suggest otherwise are misguided.

Planning for the future of Turlock

I am in the midst of planning an extended family camping trip - a venture that will, hopefully, include at least six different households and bring cousins together for more than just a few hours of chit chat. Family reunions and get-togethers are nothing new; it's been an American tradition for decades.

School districts need local authority; Pell Grants should be fully funded

I grew up here in Turlock as a product of local public schools. I attended Cunningham Elementary then Wakefield Junior High School before graduating from Turlock High School and going onto college. This is the community I know and love and I believe that today a lot of folks don't have the same opportunities I had growing up here.
