Turlock hospitality

We are based in the United Kingdom and are fortunate enough to travel the world house sitting. We have spent the last month based in the lovely Turlock and wanted to express our thanks to those we have had the good fortune to meet here. In particular the volunteers in The Turlock Historical Centre whom we questioned for over an hour( poor things); the welcoming staff in LaMo who made us feel like regulars; every single service deliverer who had a smile and cheery greeting for us and of course our host Mary and her extended family. They all presented ...

Hughson should be proud of its mayor

Hughson Mayor Matt Beekman is under intense pressure from most of our fellow mayors due to a vote at the Stanislaus Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo).

May 12, 2015 | Mayor Gary Soiseth | Letters to the Editor

Beekman embodies LAFCO's mission: Protecting agricultural land

I attended the March 25 Stanislaus LAFCO (Local Agency Formation Commission) meeting. At that meeting, staff proposed a methodology that would act as a guideline for calculating a minimum in-lieu fee amount for a proposal to fully fund 1-1 mitigation in the county. It puts one more option on the table for the cities in Stanislaus County to choose from. The commission addressed the issue of "fully funding 1-1 mitigation" when the city of Patterson was ready to vote for a 1-1 mitigation fee of $2,000 – this amount would not "fully fund" 1-1 mitigation – the fee must be sufficient ...

Hughson mayor is smart about growth

As we come out of the recession, the next year or two will be crucial. Will we return to pre-recession land use policies that drained public revenues, spread public services too thin, and fueled a real estate bubble that burst into disaster? Or, will we develop policies that ensure smart growth while protecting important resources? A mayors meeting on May 13th is a big turning point.

Young Veterinary Research Services is committed to fair and humane treatment of animals

I would like to thank Rachel Ladd for the opportunity to respond to her questions and concerns within a civil and respectful forum, a distinct contrast to one sided social and broadcast media, which we have recently experienced.

County needs more progressive groundwater regulations

The time is now for action to protect adequate water for Stanislaus County's future. The continuing drought, State law requiring Groundwater Sustainability Agencies and Plans due by 2020 /2022 (GSAs and GSPs), and recent studies by the U.S. Geological Survey designating the Central Valley as the fastest sinking water level in the country necessitate swift action by our leaders. As 80 percent of the water used in California is directly used for agriculture and that industry is expanding in our county, the need for more water is growing. The League of Women Voters of California supports policies that ...

Council needs to develop plan to fix Turlock roads now

Mayor Soiseth's public workshop on Turlock roads reconfirmed what Turlock residents already know – the condition of Turlock roads is deplorable and there is no definitive plan to provide a dedicated source of funding to halt the deterioration of Turlock's transportation infrastructure. Last November, a majority of Turlock voters supported a sales tax that would have provided 100% of the funds raised to fix only Turlock roads, but it fell just short of the two-thirds voter approval needed.

Committed to an accountable City Hall

Over the last few weeks, this Council has started a 100-day process of establishing a renewed strategic plan and reviewing our department budgets line-by-line. It is my firm belief that we, as a Council, have a responsibility to boldly state that every planned expenditure in every department will be analyzed for effectiveness and efficiency. This includes some of Turlock's contracts for outside services, and one such contract had been awarded without competition since 1991.

Ending healthcare disparities in our Valley

Considering we live in one of the richest states in the country, as well as the ninth largest economy in the world, it makes sense to come to the conclusion that every Californian would have access to adequate healthcare.
