Soiseth: Turlock’s effort to be the most inclusive city in the Valley

This past February, a group of about two dozen pastors, students, civic leaders, elected officials, and activists came together for a day-long summit about how to make Turlock the most inclusive city in the Valley. The discussion was frank and to the point: we all agreed that Turlock is a great city with a rich history of different cultures, religions, and ethnicities, but we need to do more to highlight these differences in a positive light.

Protecting Turlock: Options to fund public safety

While my elected colleagues recognize the current funding for public safety is inadequate my request to review all possible funding mechanisms including consulting our citizens about a public safety tax has thus far been rejected. Unfortunately, the funds needed to meet our public safety needs from our current funds are not there. At the last council meeting my colleagues added over $400,000 to next year's budget for a recurring expense "hoping they can find the funds for the new expense."

Remember when Brown didn’t favor immigrants?

"There is something a little strange about saying, 'Let's bring in 500,000 more people,' when we can't take care of the one million out of work."

Community leads in efforts to create safe, inclusive city

On Feb. 9, 40 leaders and citizen of the community came together for the second Roundtable on Inclusion and Diversity. Those sound like lofty words but when you consider how much Turlock has been in the national news lately (from recent settlement of Syrian and Afghan refugees, to coverage of growing hate speech around town, to protests at the university and at City Hall, to reporters writing about where Colin Kaepernick grew up to understand his stand around Black Lives Matter), those lofty words take on a real, urgent meaning. The City of Turlock and Stanislaus State brought leaders together ...

How dairy farmers are helping us meet our climate goals

Each time I drive through California's Central Valley I am in awe of how much food it produces. The Valley is responsible for almost 10 percent of the country's agriculture value and is home to many of California's most productive dairies. In fact, 90 percent of California's milk is produced in eight counties – all located in the center of our great state. California is the country's number-one milk producer and our dairy farmers work diligently to provide the highest quality milk for America's families.
