Valley religious leaders take exception to their portrayal in Nunes’ mailer

We, as faith leaders in the Central Valley, stand with and for the people of the Central Valley as we champion justice. We expect all of our elected officials and candidates for office to do the same. Therefore, as members of a nonpartisan organization, Faith in the Valley, we strive to build partnerships between local, state and federal elected officials, civic organizations and houses of worship, in order to shape a better future in the Valley for its families and communities.

Yes on P: Now is our chance to revive Fresno’s parks, neighborhoods, says Alan Autry

All great cities are known for the quality of life provided for all of their residents. Nothing defines those cities more than the special amenities that make them unique. The resurgence of the Chaffee Zoo as one of the premiere zoos in the nation is an outstanding example here in Fresno. When Fresno County citizens approved Measure Z, this is what they wanted, and this is what they now have. On Nov. 6, voters in Fresno will have the opportunity to make our parks and recreational amenities spectacular with the passage of Measure P.
