Marcelino Valdez running for District 7
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- There's also a new candidate for Fresno's District 7 seat.
Local businessman Marcelino Valdez announced his candidacy this morning in the parking lot in front of the empty Mervyn's near Blackstone and Ashlan.
Valdez says he chose this location as a symbol of how important business is to the local economy.
"We need to make it easier to do business in town. Anything from just the conditional use permits we got to streamline that process. We got to lower the fees and we got to make the city work for the people here in town," said Marcelino Valdez, Fresno Dist. 7 Candidate.
Valdez is competing against two other candidates for the district seven seat, Clint Olivier and Izzy Einsidler.
