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 ...

Mike Brem is the right choice for Turlock Mayor

The Turlock mayor position requires an individual that is committed, understands fiscal accountability, and has the necessary leadership experience to keep Turlock moving forward. The top elected office in Turlock is not a training position and taking 100 days to figure out what is going on is not acceptable. Turlock needs a mayor that is ready to provide leadership today and that candidate is Mike Brem.

Gary Soiseth is right for Turlock

Gary is smart, energetic, and builds collaborative relationships to get the job done! I am convinced that he will work with all of Turlock's stakeholders to make our town stronger, while ensuring long-term sustainability for future generations. Gary cares greatly about his constituents and is active in the community. He has a proven record of bringing synergy to multiple and diverse groups while maintaining transparent and honest communications. He will devote the time necessary to understand the issues from all perspectives prior to making a responsible decision.

Soiseth represents the best of Turlock

My name is Vaughn Brenda and I wanted to talk about Gary Soiseth's dedication to Turlock. Gary and I grew up together: from attending Community Bible Study as kids, to sharing classes together at Julien Elementary on through Turlock High, to playing in his Turlock orchards, I am lucky enough to call Gary a lifelong friend.

Measure B is the only realistic way to repair Turlock roads

It was my privilege to serve on the City Council, as well as be Turlock's representative on the predecessor to StanCog. StanCog is the transportation planning agency for Stanislaus County. There has been some controversy about the effect on Measure B of Stanislaus County passing a separate transportation tax in the future. It is simple Measure B will terminate if the County passes a separate measure in the future. Every past proposal for a county transportation tax required a major portion of the funds to be allocated to each city for road maintenance. Thus if Measure B is terminated ...

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.

Rushed groundwater measures hurt Valley economy, communities

We represent the San Joaquin Valley, one of the most productive farming regions in the country. Agriculture is a major reason why California is now the world's eighth largest economy. But the Legislature recently passed legislation that puts our ag economy and local jobs at risk.

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.
