Mayor's Welcome

I am profoundly humbled to be chosen to serve as your Mayor, especially in these exciting times. The steady, practical changes we have made to rebuild our city’s finances, revitalize our downtown and bring back our neighborhoods are achieving big results, and we’re seeing the beginnings of a wholesale transformation in the way we perceive ourselves.

Even with all our recent successes, we still have much work ahead of us to improve Fresno’s public safety, rebuild our work force, and strengthen our community. The Fresno Chamber of Commerce has been a strong partner in our past success and will continue to lead the way in supporting our future plans, and we appreciate their continued commitment to help Fresno thrive.

We share the same priorities. Make Fresno truly business-friendly. Expand the City’s economy through innovation and investment. Rebuild our crumbling infrastructure. Improve public safety through citizen involvement. Provide a safe, clean, reliable water supply.
Those goals are not only achievable, they are inevitable if we use the talent and energy of our fellow citizens to their fullest to keep our momentum going strong. Working together, we will be celebrating unprecedented achievements for years to come.

It’s a great time to be living and working in Fresno!

It is my firm belief that the Chamber strengthens not only the business community but also the community as a whole and I look forward to working closely with its leadership to help create a brighter future for everyone. I am committed to serving our citizens with honesty, integrity, and enthusiasm as we begin a new chapter in Fresno’s history.

Lee Brand
Mayor, City of Fresno
