Advertising extreme

It's not very often that I agree with burdensome rules and regulations set up by government to stifle businesses. The "Business Balk" article printed in the Journal last week made me chuckle after I read statements from business owners suggesting they are hurting due to a local sign ordinance that has outlived its useful life. I agree with the City's sign ordinance simply because it is silly to see grown men and women dancing on street corners dressed in a Halloween costume, a dill pickle, or oil can in vain attempts to sell a sandwich. What should be ...

Congratulations to Turlock’s new council members

I would like to congratulate Councilman-Elect Dehart and Councilman-Elect White on their win and I wish them the best. To the people that not just gave me their vote but also their trust I want to say thank you and that words cannot describe how honored I am to have had your support. I presented to you who I am and intend to stay true to myself in all my endeavors throughout life. This election showed me that someone with a good message that is being honest does have a chance to win elected office. Even though I did not ...

What is happening to dedicated city employees?

The citizens of Turlock deserve some answers. Long-term employees of the City of Turlock just keep disappearing from their departments and jobs. There are no explanations, though often it seems that there are allegations made against them just before they are "unavailable for comment." What kind of 'back room deals' are being made by the City? Why is any of this happening? What kind of plans are being put in the works 'behind closed doors' without any opportunity for public input as to what we really care about and value?

Support Prop 24

On November 2nd, we have a chance to do what so many of us have been dreaming about. Follow the money, we've been told, well, that's what Proposition 24, the Tax Fairness Act is about. Though its opponents try to present it as a bad deal for small business and employees, in fact, it has nothing to do with small businesses. The loopholes this prop is attempting to repeal address only big business. This is an opportunity to get the top 2 percent to begin to pay their fair share. We're turning into cattle, going along with ...

Candidate clarifies platform

As a candidate for the Turlock City Council some of your readers may have gotten the impression that I am only interested in the homeless and transportation problems. On the contrary, I am convinced that the council must be adaptable to the hard times which we must face. I am interested in making it the most efficient and able to serve the greatest number of people for the greatest good.

Why you should vote “no” on Prop 19

On Nov. 2, voters have an important decision to make on whether to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. Backers would have you believe that legalization would do everything from shutting down cartels to reducing the prison population.

Soiseth is wrong on Measure B

I was disappointed to learn of Gary Soiseth's opposition to Measure B - the proposed half-cent sales tax dedicated to fixing Turlock roads. However, my disappointment quickly turned to frustration as I read Soiseth's rational for opposing Measure B.

Brem much more qualified to be our mayor

Gary Soiseth is a really nice young man, but he has very little experience or involvement with the City of Turlock and only recently became a resident. Mike Brem has been a resident for over 20 years, he is a proven business leader - as the CEO of a very successful local business with over 100 employees, he has served in leadership roles with the Chamber of Commerce, is a longtime member and past president of Turlock Rotary, and has been a member of the city's planning commission for many years. Mike is very familiar with Turlock's unique needs ...

Measure B money will stay in Turlock

The citizens of Turlock will have the opportunity Nov. 4 to make a commitment to fixing Turlock roads by voting YES on Measure B. Turlock roads have suffered from years of neglect as a result of not having a dedicated funding source and it's time that we take control of maintaining our investment in Turlock's transportation infrastructure.

Measure B is right for Turlock

As a longtime resident of Turlock, I have witnessed the increasing deterioration of Turlock roads. The limited funds from state and federal sources only provide funding for temporary repairs on a very limited basis and are mostly directed at specific projects such as the recent pavement improvements to Monte Vista Avenue and Canal Drive. The citizens of Turlock deserve better and passage of Measure B will be the first step to ensure that Turlock roads are fixed.
