Dear Friends and Supporters,
Good jobs and economic growth are important to me and our district. But with the City’s unemployment rate at more than 8% – twice the national average, more needs to be done to provide local jobs. My experience of creating jobs and boosting the local economy are qualities I want to bring to the Fresno City Council in District 3, and I will do so with your support.
My experience expanding apprenticeship programs and creating thousands of local jobs by awarding 90% of construction contracts to local companies, has gained me the support of many respected business leaders in Fresno and I am humbled by their support.
“Miguel cares about our community and I trust he will be a champion for our City’s future.”
Alan Autry, former Mayor of the City of Fresno
“Miguel has been a leader in advocating for the agricultural community and securing the water our community needs to thrive. He will bring his economic development expertise to City hall, helping it become more business friendly.”
Sarah Woolf, Water Wise CEO
“Miguel understands the needs our business community has in order to produce jobs while being good environmental stewards. He will ensure the City improves our business climate so we can put people back to work.”
TJ Cox, engineer and President of the Central Valley NMTC Fund (CVNF).
I look forward to working with businesses in District 3 and collaborating on policies that will make it easier to do business in our city, so we can ensure Fresno becomes a vibrant city with a strong economy. But, I can’t win this race without your support. Please contact our campaign if you would like to volunteer, if you live in the district and would like a lawn sign, and please make a contribution to the campaign.
