In support of Abe Rojas

As CEO of the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds for five and a half years, I had the pleasure and opportunity to work with, and get to know, Abe Rojas. He is a man of impeccable character and honesty, and has done a tremendous job as a trustee of the Yosemite Community College District. Under his leadership, the district has flourished, even as other districts have struggled. It appears he is now being criticized for making difficult decisions. I know from personal experience that comes with the territory. What shouldn't come with the territory are personal attacks and baseless accusations. Sadly ...

Jeff Denham says he is pro immigrant when his policy choices have shown something different

Jeff Denham is running again for the California District 10 Congressional seat. I do not pretend to disagree with many of his positions because, honesty, I am willfully and blissfully unaware of many, if not 99 percent of them. A quick glance of his bill sponsorship and co-sponsorship history leaves very little to oppose as well as to champion. A citizen, as is our luxury in our great nation, need only be aware and act on those issues that catch his or her interest and make a difference in his/her day-to-day life; that is, those things that rub them ...

Nascimento works equally for the benefit of all

After attending the Turlock City Council candidates' forum, I am more convinced than ever that Turlock needs a "Tin Cup" ordinance that prohibits council members from voting on issues that directly affect those people who contributed to their campaigns. Only one candidate in District 4 strongly supported this view and it was Steven Nascimento. That is why he has my unqualified support.

Bublak is well qualified to tackle critical issues facing Turlock

Amy Bublak is the right person for a second term as Turlock City council member. She has done a great job staying on top of public safety and financial issues during her current term as a Council member. I had the privilege of working with Amy for several years when she was a police officer with Modesto PD. Because of her experience and demonstrated commitment to dealing with these problems for years, she is well qualified to tackle the many critical issues facing Turlock today, especially public safety. Amy was not only an experienced patrol officer during her tenure at ...

Nascimento is responsive to his constituents

If you have driven across the railroad tracks at Monte Vista lately, you know that a recent "repair" has created a bumpy and dangerous situation when crossing the railroad tracks. On more than one occasion I have come close to being rear-ended as others slam on their brakes after hitting the bump. On Wednesday I called City Hall to address the recent "repair" and was told that the final repair project was put out to bid, but could not go forward until after the City Council meeting on Oct. 25, because it was too late to place it on the ...

Re-elect a proven councilwoman in Turlock

Starting with her freshman year at Stanislaus State, I was fortunate in that I mentored Amy Bublak through five years of a foundation that included two years as President of the Associated Student Body. That humble beginning set the stage for her present quest to be re-elected as a councilwoman for the City of Turlock. Amy has experience and history in the ongoing affairs of Turlock. With a BA in Sociology and an MA in Public Administration coupled with a 20-year career in law enforcement, she is ideally suited to continue on the Turlock City Council. Amy is a conservative ...
