Nascimento is focused on building business-friendly community

As a small business owner in Turlock, I am proud to support Steven Nascimento for Turlock City Council. Steven understands the important role quality of life issues play in attracting small business investment in our community, and he has personally reached out to me on multiple occasions to make sure our small business needs were being met in Turlock. As a mother of four, I choose to do business in Turlock because it is also where I want to raise my children. I believe that Steven understands that it takes more than just business-friendly policies to attract investment in our ...

Measures N and O will address TUSD needs

The Turlock Unified School District recently hired more than sixty positions while other districts in our county are having trouble finding teachers. We have excellent teachers and innovative programs that, unfortunately, have waiting lists. Our high schools feature unique educational opportunities that prepare our students for a vocation right out of high school as well as prepare our students to compete well at major universities.

Who is Amy Bublak?

I first met Amy Bublak in 1987 when I joined the Turlock community as California State University's Provost and Academic Vice President. At that time Amy was the Student Body President. I found Amy to be then and to this day a straight shooter who tries to do the right thing to solve a problem rather than just the expedient one.

Eggman for Congress

Michael Eggman is not a career politician or so steeped in his party's politics that he cannot reach out to the other side to find common ground on the issues that are vital to all of us, including insuring that a federal budget is adopted in a timely manner. He is a hardworking farmer who works up and down the valley, shares our values, understands our challenges, and was raised in Turlock. He has my endorsement and vote.

Bublak gets things done for Turlock

I am the Real Estate Developer who built Monte Vista Crossings, the Holiday Inn Express Hotel and the Marriott Fairfield Inn and Suites in Turlock. Monte Vista Crossings enjoys a reputation as one of the top five open air shopping centers in the Western United States. It is by far the single largest individually owned generator of tax revenue for the City of Turlock. I imagine many people now take for granted this mega-generator of jobs and provider of quality goods and services for the residents of Turlock. This hasn't always been the case. There were times in years ...

Jeff Denham supports our cities, so we support him

Every two years our region sends a representative to the U.S. House of Representatives to voice our unique needs and concerns within the federal government. Washington, D.C. is almost 3,000 miles away from Stanislaus County and, as our Congressman, Jeff Denham could've easily insulated himself in this far away location, but he hasn't. He flies home almost every weekend to work with local leaders to better serve our communities and our residents.

In support of Abe Rojas for YCCD Area 3

We are writing in support of Abe Rojas. We have known Abe for most our adult life and have found that he sincerely cares for our community as a volunteer in community organizations and events. Abe is constantly present at high school, youth, community events and senior citizens activities, as well as the college campuses. He was the Parks and Recreation Director of the City of Turlock for 25 years. Abe's interest in education led him to serve 13 years as a Turlock High School Trustee, and is now serving as a Trustee on the Yosemite Community College District ...

Nascimento's integrity is needed on city council

We are impressed with Steven Nascimento's ability to stand up for what he believes is right even when he is outnumbered, which was so evident in the recent farmer's market fiasco. It is refreshing to see someone with common sense qualities and the ability to express himself in such an articulate manner. He has always been available and approachable to members of the community and his integrity and honesty are beyond reproach, a quality that is lacking on the political scene today. Steven is a genuinely good person and the City of Turlock is very fortunate to have ...

Voters please send your fellow citizens a clear message: We support honest candidates like Steven Nascimento. He voted to keep the non-profit Turlock Certified Farmers Market downtown and supported campaign finance reform with the TIN CUP ordinance. Steven continues to serve on our Turlock City council to support his district and all of Turlock with integrity and intelligent actions. Please tell your family, friends and neighbors in District 4 to vote for Steven Nascimento.

Vote for Bill Holly for YCCD trustee

This November's election will be like no other. As people are focusing on the presidential, federal and state races, other offices are also having elections. I want to bring your attention to a very important race for the Yosemite Community College District. I believe that our YCCD students at Modesto Junior College and Columbia College near Sonora are best served by having trustees that are hardworking, thoughtful and committed to working in the best interests of our community. I am asking you to support Dr. Bill Holly for the YCCD trustee seat, area 3 covering Turlock, Hughson and Denair ...

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 ...

Measure S is the best way to fund libraries

The question I most frequently hear regarding Measure S, is why do we need a sales tax to support the library? Shouldn't the budgets ...

Measure S: It’s all about the MONEY, yours and mine

When libraries began in the late 1800s and early 1900s, they were the cities' responsibility. This practice continued until 1999 when the cities, low on ...
