Howze’s love-hate relationship

We've read of a "love-hate" relationship between Turlock City Council member Ted Howze and Mayor John Lazar. It seems Mr. Howze has taken the "hate" part to a new level in his March 24 letter to the editor.

Community should boycott Sarah Palin

Hughson councilmembers should avoid costs of recall and resign now

The story "Hughson city employees cry 'hostile work environment,'" which ran in the April 3 issue of the Journal, articulates well the employees' complaints which were investigated and found to be without merit and unfounded. The rest of the article voiced Hughson City Council members Thom Crowder and Ben Manley's views, which is fine if you like to hear half a story. The citizens of Hughson want any employee, manager or council member removed if they violate the law.

Ideological balance

Now that the Sarah Palin event is sold out, the California State University, Stanislaus Foundation should announce another event for two weeks before or after the Palin event with a guest speaker such as Howard Dean or Rachel Maddow. This would achieve ideological balance and raise even more funds for scholarships.

Shame on you

Shame on Ted Howze with his mud slinging. Looks like he is angling to run for mayor.

Howze’s comments are self-serving

I am writing this letter in response to Mr. Ted Howze's letter to the editor, published in the March 24 issue of the Turlock Journal.

The attacks have begun

The bow shot that Turlock City Council member Ted Howze has let loose in his opinion piece in the Turlock Journal's Wednesday paper, signals the opening of candidate season. As we all remember from the previous two City Council contests, Mr. Howze's vituperous, vicious, decidedly uncivil attacks on his perceived opponent were masterpieces of bullying. Not wishing to disappoint us, he begins anew.

Accountability is the issue

For more than a year a majority of the Turlock City Council remained silent as to the reasons why former city manager Tim Kerr was fired. With the city's recent filing of a countersuit against Mr. Kerr, many of those reasons became public. I was one of three votes on the Council who chose to terminate the former city manager for reasons listed in the cross complaint which, by the process of being filed in court, has become a public document. For my part, I will let the document and the facts speak for themselves. Clearly, a majority of ...

Tax payers should not have to pay for another dog park

Now the City of Turlock, which is evidently hemorrhaging money, wants to build another dog park!

Donnelly Park wildlife should be protected

I was appalled to learn of the animal (i.e. seagull) abuse that occurred last week at Donnelly Park.

Christianson and his department have lowered crime rates

It was very disturbing to me to read letters from readers who are either ill informed or have a concealed political motive to injure the integrity and good name of individuals. With the election for sheriff coming up this year, I'm sure there will be those who will make many misguided and false comments about harassment at the Sheriff's Department. Their hope is to confuse the voters in hopes that their unknown candidate can steal the election.

Stadium blighted, neighborhood not

Turlock high school has been there for 100 years. It was there when you and I bought our houses. Though the neighborhood is not blighted, the stadium's field and track are! I not only live near it (3 blocks away) but taught health and P.E. there for 20 years.

Continue progress with Christianson

I encourage you to join me in supporting Adam Christianson in his re-election bid for sheriff of Stanislaus County. In these fiscally challenging times, we need continued proactive leadership in this important office. With the crime rate at its lowest in two decades, coupled with an aggressive and successful rural crime prevention program, and an effective focus on gang activity suppression, Adam and his department have proven themselves worthy of our confidence. Strong leadership and accountability have been the hallmarks of his first term. Let's continue this positive progress by getting behind this man and letting him continue his ...

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.
