Mayor’s Welcome

As Mayor of the City of Fresno, I’m proud of the role we play in supporting Fresno’s local business community by focusing our efforts on growing our local economy.

Thanks to the backing of the Fresno Chamber of Commerce, we’re now seeing the powerful results of programs and initiatives that are creating jobs, building momentum downtown and improving the quality of life for everyone in Fresno.

We’re seeing new energy along Fulton Street, Blackstone Avenue and the Kings Canyon corridor. We’re enjoying record low unemployment, thanks to increased investment in industrial infrastructure and a commitment to foster innovation and entrepreneurship throughout the city. And we’re fighting side by side on the biggest challenges facing our community – homelessness, human trafficking and the blight along our streets and highways.

None of this would be possible without the support of the Fresno Chamber and its members. Thank you for your continued commitment to provide a great environment for our local business community. Together, we will keep working to make Fresno a better place to live, work and play.
