As a Mexican American I feel like I've been sucker punched

Since the end of the election and the beginning of the Donald Trump presidential era I feel that great distancing and a large cultural and political fissure has been established where once there was only a crack. As an American of Mexican descent, I am finding hard to reconcile what I believed about the innate goodness of Americans and the reality of what just happened. We have elected a president who has vomited such racially charged language against people like me and my family that it is impossible for me to let go and accept our new reality. For the ...

It's never been more important to choose a proven and courageous leader of integrity.

A vote for Abe Rojas is the right direction

I support Abe Rojas for reelection. Abe is a committed individual who supports his community. I remember Abe and Sharon Rojas organizing and being present at the Rhythm Beaters events so the youth could have a venue to go to. Abe established the Kaleidoscope, brought live bands, made the City of Turlock Recreation Department what it was meant to be. Abe did not stop there. He was involved in officiating sporting events, was an announcer at sporting events and was involved in planning and developing Pedretti Park. During this period, Abe was involved with his children's events; today he ...

Another option for YCCD: Kevin Sabo

Bickering between Abe Rojas, Bill Holly, and their supporters is a tragic reflection of how most Americans feel about this election. The theme of choosing between the most unpopular candidates for president is being played out right here in the Valley in this race for college board.

Nascimento is focused on building business-friendly community

As a small business owner in Turlock, I am proud to support Steven Nascimento for Turlock City Council. Steven understands the important role quality of life issues play in attracting small business investment in our community, and he has personally reached out to me on multiple occasions to make sure our small business needs were being met in Turlock. As a mother of four, I choose to do business in Turlock because it is also where I want to raise my children. I believe that Steven understands that it takes more than just business-friendly policies to attract investment in our ...

Measures N and O will address TUSD needs

The Turlock Unified School District recently hired more than sixty positions while other districts in our county are having trouble finding teachers. We have excellent teachers and innovative programs that, unfortunately, have waiting lists. Our high schools feature unique educational opportunities that prepare our students for a vocation right out of high school as well as prepare our students to compete well at major universities.

Who is Amy Bublak?

I first met Amy Bublak in 1987 when I joined the Turlock community as California State University's Provost and Academic Vice President. At that time Amy was the Student Body President. I found Amy to be then and to this day a straight shooter who tries to do the right thing to solve a problem rather than just the expedient one.

Eggman for Congress

Michael Eggman is not a career politician or so steeped in his party's politics that he cannot reach out to the other side to find common ground on the issues that are vital to all of us, including insuring that a federal budget is adopted in a timely manner. He is a hardworking farmer who works up and down the valley, shares our values, understands our challenges, and was raised in Turlock. He has my endorsement and vote.

Bublak gets things done for Turlock

I am the Real Estate Developer who built Monte Vista Crossings, the Holiday Inn Express Hotel and the Marriott Fairfield Inn and Suites in Turlock. Monte Vista Crossings enjoys a reputation as one of the top five open air shopping centers in the Western United States. It is by far the single largest individually owned generator of tax revenue for the City of Turlock. I imagine many people now take for granted this mega-generator of jobs and provider of quality goods and services for the residents of Turlock. This hasn't always been the case. There were times in years ...

Jeff Denham supports our cities, so we support him

Every two years our region sends a representative to the U.S. House of Representatives to voice our unique needs and concerns within the federal government. Washington, D.C. is almost 3,000 miles away from Stanislaus County and, as our Congressman, Jeff Denham could've easily insulated himself in this far away location, but he hasn't. He flies home almost every weekend to work with local leaders to better serve our communities and our residents.

In support of Abe Rojas for YCCD Area 3

We are writing in support of Abe Rojas. We have known Abe for most our adult life and have found that he sincerely cares for our community as a volunteer in community organizations and events. Abe is constantly present at high school, youth, community events and senior citizens activities, as well as the college campuses. He was the Parks and Recreation Director of the City of Turlock for 25 years. Abe's interest in education led him to serve 13 years as a Turlock High School Trustee, and is now serving as a Trustee on the Yosemite Community College District ...

Nascimento's integrity is needed on city council

We are impressed with Steven Nascimento's ability to stand up for what he believes is right even when he is outnumbered, which was so evident in the recent farmer's market fiasco. It is refreshing to see someone with common sense qualities and the ability to express himself in such an articulate manner. He has always been available and approachable to members of the community and his integrity and honesty are beyond reproach, a quality that is lacking on the political scene today. Steven is a genuinely good person and the City of Turlock is very fortunate to have ...
