Soiseth: Seeking a second term to complete a ‘bold vision’

Over the past two years and eight months, I've been honored to be the mayor of Turlock.

Patriotic Pride

Our nation has accomplished what very few have in such a short period of time. This 4th of July we will celebrate America's 241st birthday, when our founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. A quick glance at a calendar shows how much we value our country's rich history. The diversity and range of US holidays is an important demonstration of our patriotism.
