Several years ago I had the pleasure of meeting a humble person, a veteran, a businessman and most importantly an honest man!
Stan Thurston has put 150 percent of himself into the position as mayor of Merced. Some have questioned some of his votes, but he votes after he does his homework and after he considers what he believes is the best for Merced.
Thurstons common sense, his love for the city of Merced and the United States led voters to choose Stan as mayor in 2011. Duty to his country took him as a Marine to the battlefields of Vietnam. His outstanding service to his community and this nation includes flying air searches with the Civil Air Patrol.
Thurston owes no one. He has integrity. He keeps his word. Stan freely speaks whats on his mind and as mayor, votes for what is best for the whole city, not a special few.
I strongly recommend Merceds veterans and other registered voters to re-elect Thurston as mayor.
