Did you know that the great majority of Noah Lor’s campaign contributions come from not just out of Merced County but from other states like Minnesota, Wisconsin and Oregon? While there’s nothing illegal about that, it begs the question about the motivation.

Even if you like Lor, you should vote for Mayor Stan Thurston, because Lor still has two years left on the council and his vote will not count any more as mayor. Mayor Thurston’s record in less than two years is nothing short of astonishing! So why not let him finish four years and keep Merced moving forward? There will be time to make history after Thurston is termed out.
