Welcome to the Residents of District 5,
As someone who grew up here, I have dedicated my life to Fresno and the Central Valley. I have seen what Fresno and the Valley can do when times are good, and I have also seen what happens to our community when times are bad. We must reinvest in our workforce, by bringing good jobs to the valley and train our existing workers to be ready for these jobs. We need to streamline regulations for business while expanding vocational training for jobs in growing fields such as healthcare, electrical trade, carpentry, computer science and engineering careers to name a few.
We need to reinvest in our infrastructure to ensure our community has the solid base for growth, this includes water infrastructure as water means jobs to our community and the valley. It is time to put our citizens ahead of politics and work together to develop solutions for a clean reliable water supply and basic infrastructure. We need to reinvest in our children, as the father of twin girls, I know our children are the Valley’s future.
My Staff and I look forward to your thoughts and comments regarding District 5 and the City of Fresno. Your input will assist us in providing direction to improve the quality of life for our community.
Councilmember, District 5
