As a former Fresno City Council member, I believe our city needs a fresh voice.
That's why I am supporting Esmeralda Soria, candidate for the council in District 1. Ms. Soria is blessed with the ability to bring factions together, and I am impressed with her achievements.
She is a great example of what makes our city and Valley great. She comes from humble roots in the Valley, has worked very hard, attended some of the best schools in the state and now is a local law professor. She is also an attorney and has advised legislators on issues related to air and water quality, public transportation and local government.
I am supporting Ms. Soria in District 1 because she will be a strong and positive voice for Fresno. I am confident she will work tirelessly to strengthen our local economy for more and better jobs.
