Free Slurpee Day at 7-Eleven

It’s 50 years of one of America’s favorite frozen drinks! 7-Eleven’s Slurpee has turned 50, and, to celebrate its birthday, aka Free Slurpee Day, stop by the 7-Eleven today to get a free Slurpee. Turlock Irrigation District’s Canal Drive Weather Station is predicting a high 93 degrees today, and an ice cold drink can be great way to recharge from the summer heat.
There is no more ambiguity in where the Turlock City Council stands in their opinions regarding campaign finance. After voting down all the other proposed measures, a majority of the City Council, with Councilmember Bublak teleconferencing into the meeting, voted in approval for Proposal 4, which implements voluntary campaign contribution limits. The ordinance adopted by the City Council regarding voluntary contribution limits has a looser definition of a donor than the ordinance proposed by Councilmember Steven Nascimento. Whereas Councilmember Nascimento sought to define a donor so that an individual who owns multiple business entities couldn’t usurp the contribution limit by donating from his different business entities, Mayor Soiseth’s proposal kept the definition as defined by the State of California. 
Originally, Director of Development Services Mike Pitcock had stated that a ribbon cutting for Turlock’s relocated Brandon Koch Memorial Skate Park could have been in the works for mid-June or early July. However, the completion date of the Turlock skate park has once again been pushed back.

Series of Campaign Finance Meetings Begin

Discussion surrounding campaign finance will have a forum today as the first of four special meetings regarding the topic will be held this evening. Campaign finance concern extendeds back to February 2014, where a public hearing for campaign contributions was held with the 2014 City Council, then composed of Councilmembers Forest White, Amy Bublak, Bill DeHart Jr., Steven Nascimento, and Mayor John Lazar. The request would have amended the municipal code and added a chapter to it on campaign contributions.
