Applause for supervisors

I applaud the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors for approving the Salida Now initiative. They should be rewarded for acknowledging the need for new business parks.

With the upcoming closure of the Hershey factory in Oakdale, many Stanislaus County residents will be forced to deal with the harsh reality that our county does not have adequate job opportunities. Thanks to the future Salida development, many families will be saved from the hardship of a bay area commute.
