On Saturday, March 19, candidates for Fresno’s next Mayor were on display at Fresno State. The candidate forum featured Vanessa Ramirez-Avila of Telemundo 51, who moderated 19 questions posed to mayoral hopefuls. The event was attended by about 200 voters, with more than a dozen community groups promoting civic engagement through ballot measure education. The forum was independent of the Labor Council’s internal endorsement process. Watch the candidates’ responses to questions:
How do the candidates plan to solve our police recruitment challenges?
Do the candidates support the privatization of City services?
