Mayor Lazar is an honest businessman

Dear Editor,

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 ...

Are stadium renovations really the best use of funds?

There is a lot of unfair criticism pointed at those opposed to the remodeling of Joe Debely Stadium. Both of my sons played on that field in high school, and even then it was in need of repair. Nobody wants to see an athlete get hurt due to poor field quality and no parents want to continue sitting on those cold metal bleachers in the middle of a chilly November evening.

Joe Debely renovations benefit entire community

The Turlock High School Joe Debely Stadium renovation appears to have brought a lot of negativity to the school, the City Council, and those who support the renovation. The Turlock Unified School Board is always concerned about its neighbors and their needs. They pride themselves in maintaining good relationships with our community and have repeatedly voiced their willingness to address any and all issues with regard to the stadium improvements.

Family is grateful for support of community

On Oct. 27, 2009 at approximately 3:30 a.m., our home and our belongings were lost in a fire. First and foremost we would like to thank our Heavenly Father for waking our mom (Shana) up that morning and giving us the chance to live! We, the Jones family, would like to express how thankful we are to each and every person who helped us pick up the pieces to our lives and put them back together. There is truly no amount of thanks that will ever compensate for what you all have done for us. The clothing, food ...

EDITOR’S NOTE

In a letter to the editor titled "Council members need lesson in civility" that ran in the Feb. 13 issue of the Journal, Dale Parkinson wrote: "Councilmember Kurt Spycher casually said that (City of Turlock Economic Development Manager Heidi McNally-Dial's) position on the city staff would be eliminated and then Councilmember Ted Howze agreed."

Measure B will benefit Turlock citizens

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.

Soiseth's overseas leadership experience needed in Turlock

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.

Soiseth is ready to lead our 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 ...

Soiseth has clear vision for Turlock

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.

Denham represents more jobs, less Nancy Pelosi

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has the political power to help raise huge campaign dollars for congressional candidates like Michael Eggman in hopes of once again becoming Speaker.

I Support Mike Brem for Mayor

Our family contracted with Supherb Farms to grow basil for several years. One finds when in business there are always challenges to face in an ever-changing environment and growing basil was no exception. The one constant I found through my experience with Supherb Farms was my high regard for the folks of whom I had the opportunity to meet. Each one projected competence, helpfulness, problem-solving ability, work ethic, confidence and quiet humility. When I look back on those days and the great people of Supherb Farms, I see now that they were a reflection of their leader and CEO, Mike ...
