I contacted Fresno City Council member Lee Brand’s office several times about a suspected drug house across the street in northeast Fresno. I received no response.
I tried to contact him about the deplorable condition of the front and back yards of the same house. After several emails and phone calls, his office told me to contact Code Enforcement. He could do nothing for me!
In the Sept. 28 Bee article “Fresno mayoral candidates face off,” Brand states, “(code) enforcement is inconsistent and ineffective.” Go figure? He failed and still fails to act because he simply doesn’t care.
To the contrary, Fresno County Supervisor Henry Perea has shown me he has compassion for the people of Fresno. Perea has not forgotten he represents not just people but human beings. He has shown up consistently over the last several years at the Fresno National Association of Mental Illness’s Walk, which raises money to help people and the families of people who live with mental illness on a daily basis.
I was not surprised I saw his face on TV when he showed up at the city jail not long after the two correctional officers were shot, lending his genuine heartfelt support to anyone who needed it. Was Brand there?
