Reflecting on Turlock’s year of reforms

Reforms in government are never easy, but they're often necessary. As the great grandson of some of Turlock's first farmers and residents, I'm committed to preserve our history as a small, close-knit community. As mayor, I'm also committed to reforms that acknowledge our need to be accountable, unbiased and transparent in how Turlock conducts business now and into the future.

It looks like the City Council is supporting private business with public funds

On June 25, I parked my car on Main Street in front of the Vintage Lounge and was told by a young girl that I had to pay $5 as the space was for valet parking only. I explained to her that it was a public street and I would not pay for valet parking on a public street and that she should call her employer and have him explain to me how legally he could charge a fee.

The new proposed changes to the BLAST Transit will result in decreased ridership and revenue; creating a hardship for those who depend on public bus services to go to the library, doctors, hospital, schools, do necessary shopping and go to work or school.

Homelessness in our area

As a college student studying homelessness in the last 2 months, I have concluded that more efforts have to be exerted to help put an end to the issue of homelessness and help those in need. Despite efforts by various programs and shelters to try and help the homeless people, many of them have not received proper funding by the state, leaving several citizens in need of help. Many people throughout the community are aware of the growing epidemic of homelessness throughout Stanislaus County. According to Stanislaus Housing & Support Services Collaborative, in 2015 there were approximately 1,400 homeless men ...

Your Views

I wish that, when presented with a street closure request by Mr. Cipponeri who sought to completely supplant our non-profit, volunteer Turlock Certified Farmers' Market-time, place, and location-that the Turlock City Council had simply accepted the permit for review and turned it down.

Shady dealings should not be part of our elected officials' agenda

I have been following the controversy in regards to the farmers market, I read where Mr. Cipponeri and his father in-law had contributed to then-candidate now Mayor Gary Soiseth. I am surprised nobody has made a bigger issue of this.

Reforms needed to prevent lasting divisions from forming in Turlock

A city is made up of roads, sidewalks, parks, schools, and stores. Most importantly, a city is a community of various individuals living their lives. Different cities have different characteristics and atmospheres. They carry in them different experiences and histories. They mean different things to different people. However, in what seems to be this simple question, one finds that the complexities of life are demonstrated in the social fabric of modern civilization, the city.

Farmers' market debate over future of Turlock events

It became clear during the Turlock City Council meeting of Feb. 20 that the debate over the future of the city's farmers' market is in large part a debate over the future and character of Turlock.

Year round market detrimental to businesses

As committed downtown business owners, we have enjoyed contributing to the revitalization of Main Street over the past few years. We have been delighted to see the Farmers' Market evolve and bring so much life to our downtown. However, the success of the market has not come without sacrifices being made on our parts, most specifically related to a portion of Main Street being closed each week.
