Mayor Brand Statement on Amazon’s HQ2 Shortlist

Mayor Lee Brand released the following statement on the news that the City of Fresno did not make the list of 20 finalists for Amazon’s second headquarters:

“We always knew it was a long shot, but the nation took notice of Fresno’s unique HQ2 bid and we’re already seeing new interest from a number of major companies.  Between our 10-year economic development plan and our new Business Friendly Fresno 2.0! Initiative, Fresno’s future looks bright as it ever has.”
