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.

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.

Thanks for making holidays brighter for foster, at-risk youth

This year, Aspiranet partnered with 39 Starbucks stores in Stanislaus and Merced counties for our annual Holiday Gift Drive, where we collected 810 gifts for the foster and at-risk youth we serve with the help and generosity of Starbucks customers. The holidays, which can be a difficult time for our youth because they are separated from parents and/or siblings, becomes a time when our youth feel the support of the community.
