Merced City Council, mayoral candidates talk platform issues

Bring more jobs and businesses to the city of Merced and bolster public safety. Those were the main issues candidates agreed on in their race for Merced City Council this year. The four-year terms of council members Noah Lor, John Carlisle and Michele Gabriault-Acosta ended this year, creating three spots on the City Council. Gabriault-Acosta is termed out for her City Council position but she is running for mayor in the November election. Lor and Carlisle are running for re-election this year. Other City Council candidates are Mike Murphy, Tony Dossetti, Charles Bolin, Richard Cervantes, Carl Pollard and Alex Gallardo Jr.
