When people ask me why I decided to move back home to accept a position with the Turlock Journal just one month after I graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara in 2014, I would simply tell them that I was looking to get some real-world experience as a news reporter that I would need if I ever wanted to pursue my childhood dream of becoming a broadcast journalist.

However, the Act leaves contribution limits for local candidates up to local governments. Unfortunately, many communities - including Turlock - have not exercised their ability to impose limits on campaign contributions.
