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 ...

Support for Abe Rojas

I am writing this letter in support of re-electing Abe Rojas as Trustee for YCCD Area 3. Since the YCCD Board will be hiring a new Chancellor this year, stability and continuity on the board is crucially important. Abe has been an active, loyal member of the YCCD Board for over 20 years. He understands all the concerns and issues connected with the District. Abe always comments and asks competent questions when reports are given. He is committed and alert. Rojas has served as Board Chair numerous times during his tenure and has consistently done an outstanding job in this ...

Gil Esquer excellent choice for Turlock City Council District 2

It is my honor to write this letter in support of my friend Gil Esquer, a candidate for Turlock City Council District 2. Gil is a lifelong resident of District 2. He is a Turlock High School graduate and has been an active community volunteer for the past 40 years that I have known him. He has helped primarily with community food baskets, shopping for children in need, and fundraising needs of Turlock schools. He is generally in the background, but always as an informal leader who rolls up his sleeves to help others. Gil demonstrates solid and honorable values ...

Stop the regulatory drought

The State Water Resource Control Board (SWRCB) is either oblivious to the pain they are causing our community or simply don't care. Their mandates on water supply are drying up farms, killing our economy and sucking the life out of our communities. These unelected bureaucrats are slowly but surely destroying our economy and thus our way of life.

Stan State's accolades deserve top billing

I am writing about the article published on Sept. 16 about UC Merced ranked among nation's best colleges. I certainly agree that the article is newsworthy. However, I question why UC Merced is in large bold letters in the title, while Stanislaus State is in smaller regular text under the UC Merced title? UC Merced ranked No. 78 in U.S. News & World Report among public schools and No. 152 in the National Universities categories, while Stanislaus State ranked No. 14 in the western region and No. 61 regionally among all four-year colleges. Stanislaus State deserves to be on ...

Vote for Amy Bublak for Turlock City Council District 4

I am very pleased to support Amy Bublak for reelection to Turlock City Council District 4. I have known Amy for over a decade. She loves Turlock and has been very involved in our Assyrian community, attending all major events and festivals. As a retired police officer with over 23 years of experience, she knows how to work with our police department to lower crime in Turlock.

Esquer is an excellent choice for City Council

Editor,

Nascimento is a strong voice for common sense

We in Turlock have a great opportunity to give some feedback to those serving our community in city government. In the upcoming election we have the opportunity to vote for Steven Nascimento, who through the Turlock Farmers Market saga this past year, was a clear voice for common sense, good judgment, and clarity. Steven demonstrated his ability to stand apart from perceived political power – and never waiver from what was obviously the correct course. Others on the council, including his opponent, went along with the bias that drove the majority of the council to the flawed decision that was ultimately ...

Arts education gives students a reason to celebrate

All societies and cultures, have limits on what is acceptable behavior and what is allowable in the way of personal expression, yet the arts remain a relatively free space in which to create more complicated forms of public interaction. The world is open to integration and interpretation more than ever before and the effect that art has on us as individuals and as a society is now reaching beyond the borders of any given culture. Mass communication -- via television, the Internet, and cinema, along with cultural syncretism and networking between nations and even continents, has enabled us as human beings ...

Why I'm running for YCCD Trustee Area 3

When I told my grandmother, a lifelong resident of Turlock, I'm running for the YCCD Board against the incumbent of twenty years, she became skeptical of my chances. We're a family that takes pride in civic engagement, sitting around the dining room table with our ballots, having a spirited discussion about the consequences of our decisions. That's why she knew the odds are stacked against newcomers looking to breathe new life into politics.

Bublak played vital role in city's economic development

I'm writing to encourage Turlock voters in District 4 to re-elect Amy Bublak to Turlock's City Council. In all the conversations I've had with Amy, one thing that is clear is her devotion to our community and its citizens. She has a vision for Turlock that preserves its uniqueness while working to increase its economic potential.
