On August 13, 2009, the City of Turlock received written correspondence from the Freedom from Religion Foundation urging the City Council to discontinue the practice of scheduling an invocation before Turlock City Council meetings.
Every person in Turlock and the surrounding communities, really does need to understand how lucky we are to have such honest and reputable auto dealers here. Your local dealerships are all family-owned and employ many of your friends and neighbors; and it has been my experience that these employees are some of the nicest, kindest and most professional people in our community. Yes, we have all heard of how the U.S. auto industry has been in trouble recently, but this is not of your local dealers making. Let's all find it in our hearts to keep our auto ...
Is the Turlock City Council living in a dream world? Their actions seem to indicate they are for the following reasons:
In response to the letter to the editor about Westside discrimination which ran in the July 8 issue of the Journal, I agree 100 percent with the writer.
California State University, Stanislaus administration has expressed deep concern for the state of the California State budget. Why then, have they dismantled a perfectly good sign at the Monte Vista and Del's Lane entrance? Are they preparing the area for a different sign at the entrance to match those on Crowell Road and Geer Road? What about the sculpture that has been removed from the Del's Lane entrance?
Recently we, and the Turlock community, lost two of the nicest, most giving people we had ever met. This couple donated many hours of service here and died within weeks of each other. Shirley and Roger will be warmly remembered by everyone who knew them.
The nomination by our President Obama for Judge Sotomayor made me very proud as a Latina who, like Sotomayor, believed in the power of education.
Have you ever noticed that when people say they hate attorneys, that it's usually their own attorney that they hate? The costs of hiring an attorney are often more than the cases are worth, even if you win!
The hit and run homicide, which occurred on Jan. 31, of my son Kelly R. Story has still not been solved. The shooting of my grandson in 2007 and the robbery of my parents in 2008 also remain unsolved.
What an awesome family event on July 4 hosted by the Turlock Chamber of Commerce.
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.
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 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 ...
Bill DeHart has brought common sense and cooperative leadership to the Turlock City Council. He is committed to long term solutions regarding drinking and waste water needs of the public and industry, the condition of neighborhood and community roadways, and appropriate staffing of our public safety departments - all within the framework of fiscal responsibility and sustainable growth.
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.
I have attended every Turlock City Council meeting since April of this year. I was very impressed at the way the Council worked together to formulate Measure B. They have come up with a measure that will benefit every citizen in Turlock. Measure B money can only be used to repair existing roads in Turlock. The measure established a citizens' oversight committee to see that the funds go to fix Turlock roads.
Jan and I initially reached out to Gary Soiseth in his first years as a USDA Senior Agriculture Advisor embedded with the United States Army in Afghanistan. We followed his accomplishments throughout his service from 2009 to 2013, and we were thrilled to see that he chose to bring his skills and experience back to his home community.
As we come together to elect a new mayor, we are-in my opinion-at a crossroads. It seems that major issues have not been addressed and difficult decisions have been delayed; there really is no more time to waste. I certainly did not accomplish everything I hoped for in my time as mayor but I do know now that solving all of these issues will take an energetic, organized, and passionate leader who sees this job as a goal and not a hobby. I have been fortunate enough to work with both mayoral candidates throughout the years and while ...
Gary Soiseth's campaign for mayor of Turlock has sought to bring the most important issues facing Turlock to the forefront. He has focused on water reliability, deficit spending, and bringing transparency to issues at City Hall. His focus on the issues, rather than who else was running, singles him out as a focused, convicted, and visionary leader.
