I am honored to serve as Mayor of this great city. My mission is to make Fresno a better, safer and more prosperous place to live, work and play – for everyone. I cannot, however, do this alone. It takes a team, and the Chamber of Commerce is one of the many amazing partners the city works with to achieve this goal. I can’t thank the Chamber and its members enough for everything they do to help make our community great.
Thanks to the Chamber’s support, we’re launching Street2Home, a county-wide collaboration to address homelessness compassionately and intelligently. That’s just one of many initiatives the Chamber has supported recently. With the Chamber’s help, we have created more than 4,000 new jobs, continued revitalization in our downtown, improved transportation options citywide and developed a blueprint for making Fresno the most business friendly city in California. Teamwork is crucial to our city’s success and our strong relationship with the Chamber continues to pay great dividends.
On behalf of everyone in City Hall, let me express my full appreciation for the unwavering support of the Fresno Chamber and its members. Thank you for your continued commitment to provide a great environment for our local business community to grow and thrive.
