Gabriault-Acosta following Mom, Dad in running for Merced mayor

It's in her genes. That's what Michele Gabriault-Acosta tells people. And she's probably only half-joking. She's had eight years of Merced City Council experience and comes from a family long involved in city politics. Her mother was the first female mayor of Merced, and her father also sat in the mayor's chair in the late 1980s.
