25 YEARS AGO: Measure G in Turlock was one of the many ballot measures that were being considered by voters in November. Measure G asked residents to consider whether the city should play an active role in seeing that affordable rental units get built in the city. A similar measure in San Joaquin County, Measure Q would allow the county to use federal and state funding to build as many as 500 low-rent housing units a year. Martin Amador, Turlock's housing program coordinator, said there were 500 and 600 people on a waiting list for low-income rental subsidies. At the time, the government considered a family of four with an annual income of $17,250 or less to be very low-income. A family of four with an annual income of more than $17,250 but less than $27,600 is considered to be low-income.
