Dale Parkinson: Turlock election truth comes out

January 19, 2014 

It took the state nearly five years of investigation, but the truth is finally coming out. Turlock leaders were involved in crooked activity to rig the city council election in 2008, to put themselves on the council and to defeat Mary Jackson. Did these city leaders again use crooked means in 2012 to win election and defeat Jackson? Will the sitting council member who did this in our hometown recuse herself from all activity or simply resign now?

This was not a case of “mistakes were made.” This was planned, considered, accepted, bought and paid for and then covered up for nearly five years!
