Turlock City Councilmember Andrew Nosrati announced that he will not seek re-election for his district in this year’s election. Nosrati said he wants to focus on the private sector as a way to try to help the community.

“At this time, my heart is pulling me to focus on other things in a new role,” said Nosrati. “I look forward to working on housing, community development and fostering a culture of creativity as a private individual through this next chapter of my life.”

As an exiting message, he encourages residents to get involved in their community and make a difference at the local level.

“I encourage any citizen that has a heart for their community, with a desire to serve, to make a run for local office,” said Nosrati. “It’ll test you like nothing else; but if you constantly seek personal growth, understanding of others and the issues and universal truths; you will not be disappointed.”

Nosrati represents District 3, which encompasses northeast Turlock, north of E. Tuolumne Road and generally east of Crowell Road. He was elected to represent the district in 2018 and has spent the last 6-plus years working at AdShare, where he currently serves as VP of Product Development.

While proud of his professional achievements, Nosrati really prides himself most on his compassion, empathy and relentless desire to understand the many unique perspectives of Turlock and said he is honored to be able to serve the community.

At this time, no candidates have announced their intention to run for the District 3 seat. The filing period to run for the council seat is in July.

District 1 is also up for election this year, which is currently represented by Councilmember Nicole Larson. She has not yet announced a decision on seeking re-election. District 1 covers southeast Turlock, south of E. Tuolumne Road and east of S. Golden State Boulevard.

Nosrati’s announcement comes shortly after Mayor Amy Bublak announced her decision to seek re-election. Bublak, a retired police officer, was first elected to the Turlock City Council in the fall of 2008 and then as Mayor in 2018.
