Measure B: Time to fix Turlock's roads

Dear Editor,

August 29, 2014 | | Letters to the Editor


Time to take control of maintaining Turlock's roads

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.

Continuing the fight

Every year on this day I do a lot of self-reflecting. Why you may ask? Because 14 years ago on Aug. 1 I lost my mother to breast cancer, and not a day goes by without the hope that I have turned out to be someone she would be proud of.

Our shared real-life story

When friends and I watched "Years of Living Dangerously" - the TV series about climate change - we had different reactions. And some serious conversations resulted.

Cluster mail boxes problem for senior village

Our door-to-door mail delivery was just canceled and they put in one of those 'cluster box units' - well, actually three of them in the same location. We have no option. Not even putting in a curbside mail box. No notice. No instructions to open package boxes. This is a senior village and about half of us can't walk far enough to go to the mail box and get our medication through the much cheaper delivery by mail - $10 versus $20 to $40 plus a 15 mile trip to the nearest accepted pharmacy.

THS Relay team comes together to raise $15k for annual event

I am writing this morning because I am so very proud of the Relay for Life Club students at Turlock High School. This is the 10th year that THS has had a student team participate in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life event. Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society's signature fundraising event and the largest non-for-profit fundraiser in the world.

Pushing back against pop culture's toxic messages

I really appreciated Dennis Wyatt's Feb. 22 column, "'Malling' of America's community standards". It brought to mind something that I have given much thought to in recent years, namely the profound disparity that exists between the cultural values of big business and the cultural values of many socially conservative communities around the country.

Assemblymember Olsen should work on milk prices, not ethanol

In response to Assemblymemeber Kristin Olsen's opinion about ethanol: You are a state assembly member, but you want to get involved in the federal scheme designed to make our country less dependent upon foreign oil. You complain about the federal process because of your parochial interest in dairymen. These are crocodile tears! As a state legislator, you are in control of the state mandated milk prices. Exercise your time on behalf of the California citizens in pursuit of those subjects you have been given control over by the California citizens. Raise the California controlled milk prices so that a ...

Turlock leadership choices

Turlock is a community on the move, growing jobs, attracting new economic development and emerging as one of the best places to live and work in the Central Valley. At the core of this success is the recognition that confronting our community's challenges and capitalizing on new opportunities requires a team effort to mobilize our community's assets and the active cooperation of business, civic and political leaders around core objectives. This is why the leadership choices Turlock voters make in November are so important. This is why, after conducting extensive interviews with all the candidates, the Turlock Chamber ...

Gary Soiseth for Mayor of Turlock

Turlock has been blessed with many dedicated and talented elected leaders throughout the city's history. Turlock is recognized as a special place to live in large part because of the policies of the past that have shaped the present. To insure a bright and prosperous future Turlock must have a mayor with vision and the strength to make many difficult and informed decisions. On Nov. 4 Turlock voters will consider two very well qualified men seeking this important position.

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.
