Carnegie vote success for council, arts community, city

Congratulations to the Turlock City Council for passing the construction of the Carnegie Arts Center by 5-0 vote Tuesday night. After over 10 years of squabbling and turf battles between the City and the arts community, this council set-up a subcommittee including: Mayor John Lazar and Council member Amy Bublak to develop a Carnegie concept that all members of the council could accept and support. Ms. Bublak took the lead in working with the Arts Foundation to develop an agreement whereby the City would build the facility using RDA funds but not provide operating funds for the facility. The Foundation ...

It’s a GREENgos silent spring

In the not so golden state anymore, if you stop and listen you'll notice it's quieter. You'll see more cars and trucks smoking and running on plastic factory spares. The once constant drone of traffic and commercial activity is giving way to a silence of the lambs.

Howze’s love-hate relationship

We've read of a "love-hate" relationship between Turlock City Council member Ted Howze and Mayor John Lazar. It seems Mr. Howze has taken the "hate" part to a new level in his March 24 letter to the editor.

Hughson councilmembers should avoid costs of recall and resign now

The story "Hughson city employees cry 'hostile work environment,'" which ran in the April 3 issue of the Journal, articulates well the employees' complaints which were investigated and found to be without merit and unfounded. The rest of the article voiced Hughson City Council members Thom Crowder and Ben Manley's views, which is fine if you like to hear half a story. The citizens of Hughson want any employee, manager or council member removed if they violate the law.

Ideological balance

Now that the Sarah Palin event is sold out, the California State University, Stanislaus Foundation should announce another event for two weeks before or after the Palin event with a guest speaker such as Howard Dean or Rachel Maddow. This would achieve ideological balance and raise even more funds for scholarships.

Shame on you

Shame on Ted Howze with his mud slinging. Looks like he is angling to run for mayor.

Howze’s comments are self-serving

I am writing this letter in response to Mr. Ted Howze's letter to the editor, published in the March 24 issue of the Turlock Journal.

The attacks have begun

The bow shot that Turlock City Council member Ted Howze has let loose in his opinion piece in the Turlock Journal's Wednesday paper, signals the opening of candidate season. As we all remember from the previous two City Council contests, Mr. Howze's vituperous, vicious, decidedly uncivil attacks on his perceived opponent were masterpieces of bullying. Not wishing to disappoint us, he begins anew.

Accountability is the issue

For more than a year a majority of the Turlock City Council remained silent as to the reasons why former city manager Tim Kerr was fired. With the city's recent filing of a countersuit against Mr. Kerr, many of those reasons became public. I was one of three votes on the Council who chose to terminate the former city manager for reasons listed in the cross complaint which, by the process of being filed in court, has become a public document. For my part, I will let the document and the facts speak for themselves. Clearly, a majority of ...

Tax payers should not have to pay for another dog park

Now the City of Turlock, which is evidently hemorrhaging money, wants to build another dog park!

Donnelly Park wildlife should be protected

I was appalled to learn of the animal (i.e. seagull) abuse that occurred last week at Donnelly Park.

Gary Soiseth is a breath of fresh air

My family and I met Gary Soiseth this last Saturday when he walked through my neighborhood in the rain. He spoke about his commitment to a positive campaign without negative attacks against his opponent. He spoke about moving Turlock in an even stronger direction. And he spoke about bringing new energy and new ideas to City Hall. All of which I agree with.

Roman Catholic Bishops support Proposition 47

Proposition 47 is the one proposition on the ballot for which the Roman Catholic Bishops of California have taken a position of support. "The California Safe Neighborhoods Act" is a step forward in reforming the broken criminal justice system in our state. It will provide educational support and treat mental illness to make our communities safer while addressing sentencing discrepancies in constructive ways.

I have known the Brem family since they first moved to Turlock more than 22 years ago and am happy to wholeheartedly support Mike for mayor.

Our community would be fortunate to have Soiseth as Mayor

Gary Soiseth recently volunteered to spend a day speaking with high school students about his experiences in Afghanistan and his commitment to public service. After hearing him speak, I felt that any community would be fortunate to have him as a leader. He is intelligent, well-spoken, and most importantly, he is passionate. As a teacher, I value his desire to help the youth of tomorrow discover their potential, and I applaud his efforts to help them achieve their goals. Gary's ability to connect with the youth of today will help foster the generation of tomorrow.

Turlock leadership choices

Turlock is a community on the move, growing jobs, attracting new economic development and emerging as one of the best places to live and work in the Central Valley. At the core of this success is the recognition that confronting our community's challenges and capitalizing on new opportunities requires a team effort to mobilize our community's assets and the active cooperation of business, civic and political leaders around core objectives. This is why the leadership choices Turlock voters make in November are so important. This is why, after conducting extensive interviews with all the candidates, the Turlock Chamber ...

Gary Soiseth for Mayor of Turlock

Turlock has been blessed with many dedicated and talented elected leaders throughout the city's history. Turlock is recognized as a special place to live in large part because of the policies of the past that have shaped the present. To insure a bright and prosperous future Turlock must have a mayor with vision and the strength to make many difficult and informed decisions. On Nov. 4 Turlock voters will consider two very well qualified men seeking this important position.
