Turlock is changing, for the better
quill pen

Anyone who lives in Turlock, and those who live near us, recognize that Turlock is a special community: our city has been well planned, Main Street is thriving, our parks are welcoming, the restaurants and businesses investing in Turlock continue to grow. We also have the benefit of having Stanislaus State to expose our children to higher education within our community. But without a doubt what makes Turlock the best city in the region is its people. Our community is diverse with strong roots in Scandinavian, Portuguese, Assyrian, and Mexican cultures (to name just a few). 

Over the last four years our city — led by Mayor Soiseth — has been putting our diversity front and center, giving a voice to those in our town who may have been overlooked. The promise to focus on everyone in Turlock with compassion and a welcoming attitude, whether a fifth-generation resident or a refugee who is new to our community, is what makes Turlock such a special place to call home. 

I’m proud that our Mayor has made inclusivity such a central pillar of his leadership over the last four years. From the refugee civics days at City Hall, to encouraging our Sikh community to participate in our annual parades, to the inclusivity summit hosted alongside Stanislaus State. Mayor Soiseth has made it known that no matter your race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or country of birth that Turlock is welcoming to all. Turlock is lucky to have a Mayor who is so focused on making sure everyone feels at home when they are in our city and I encourage you to join me in voting for him on Nov. 6.
