Andrew Janz files paperwork to challenge Mayor Lee Brand

News

Fresno County prosecutor Andrew Janz is ready to go head to head with Fresno Mayor Lee Brand.

Janz filed his paperwork last week. Janz lost his bid to unseat District 22 Congressman Devin Nunes in this last mid-term election.

The Democratic challenger is expected to make a public announcement on Thursday.

From the Mayor: 

“I welcome the opportunity to have voters compare my well-earned experience and record of accomplishment, highlighted by creating over 5,000 good-paying jobs with benefits, to his complete lack of experience and a track record that consists of saying ‘I’m not Devin Nunes.’ Will his new campaign be ‘I’m not Lee Brand’? To which I reply, “Yes, young man, you’re right. You’re not Lee Brand. You aren’t even close.'”
