I have watched with great interest all the advertising from candidates who are running for mayor in Fresno. In each ad, much is made about public safety and the need for more cops. Everyone is singing the same song – so adding cops in no advantage for either candidate. The difference is how to get to a level where we are not so dependent on law enforcement.
The best deterrent for crime is a job, and the only candidate in this race who has a history of job creation is Lee Brand. His record as a business owner and employer and his accomplishments on the city council for making Fresno more “job friendly” aim to a point in our future in which all citizens prosper.
We don’t just need platitudes. We need experience and Lee Brand brings that to the table like no other.
