Election Update: Soiseth, Jacob Pad Leads; Measure B Support Falling

Jonathan McCorkell/TurlockCityNews.com

(Update 10:17 p.m.) With 70.27 percent of Turlock precincts reporting, local candidates are beginning to pull away in their respective races for Mayor of Turlock and City Council.

Mayoral candidate Gary Soiseth took an early lead over opponent Mike Brem and continues to extend that lead, now sitting at 58.52 percent.

Matthew Jacob (3,428) stands as the top vote-getter in the Council race, with Bill DeHart (3,259) sitting at number two. Forrest White (3,013), however, is beginning to fall behind a bit in third. A little more than 400 votes separate Jacob, DeHart, and White.

The top-two vote-getters win the two available seats.

The half-cent road tax, Measure B, is close to getting the necessary two-thirds, or 66.7 percent, to pass, but support is beginning to fall. It currently has a 63.06 yes vote.

Districtwide elections do not appear to be as close as the Turlock elections, with incumbent Jeff Denham (R-Turlock), Kristin Olsen (R), and Tom Berryhill (R) leading their respective elections by sizable margins.

Denham has already issued a victory statement on Tuesday night.

"I want to thank the dedicated volunteers who helped spread our message and get people out to vote. The people of the 10th district tonight sent a strong statement about the kind of local representative they're seeking to work on their behalf in Congress. I will continue to fight for our shared priorities and the issues my campaign was built on — like crafting long-term water solutions, creating jobs, fighting for our veterans and protecting our seniors. It's an honor to serve the Valley."

Statewide, the California Governor race has already been called, with incumbent Edmund G. “Jerry” Brown winning reelection over challenger Neel Kashkari, who has conceded the race.

    Lazar spreading lies and rumors about Soiseth won this election for Soiseth. Brem also carried that on for his master Lazar but he had no clout and was just as disconnected as Lazar was. Will Lazar apologize to Gary Sosieth, Curt Andre and Matt Swanson for the mud he threw? We'll be waiting.
  2. Goodbye Lazar!! says:
    What would you expect from Lazar who had a position created by him and Pitcock for his campaign
    manager and then she was not laid off before the other 21 City of Turlock employees in 2009 that had more seniority than her, still amazes me.
    That is called lack of integrity, goodbye.
  3. Fairytale win says:

"You may get a variety of fabrics for the best activewear for women online, including cotton, spandex, synthetic, bamboo fiber, and Gore-Tex. Each of these materials has distinctive properties that set them apart. Since polyester is incredibly light and comfortable to wear, we advise you to utilize it.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

Many online pharmaceutical stores provide the best kratom capsules at affordable prices. You can look for such online stores on Google or even social media.

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
  • paul on Why are customer reviews important during online shopping? "The most crucial component of every online store is its customer reviews. Reviews can assist other customers in determining whether or not the business and its items are worthwhile purchases. If you earn positive evaluations, your brand will gain an enormous reputation and rank better on Google. According to Google's recently modified algorithm, a business can increase its performance by obtaining reviews. This is the rationale behind inquiries about reviews on Google, Facebook, and other online clothing stores for women."
