Mayor Brand talks trash and flexes his veto power

Local News

Fresno mayor Lee Brand believes his vetoes will stand after axing several items on the 2020 budget, including the Advance Peace program. Brand says it would be irresponsible for him to approve a budget including programs that did not have a proven track record.

Brand also addressed a picture KSEE24 anchor Stefani Booroojian captured just blocks from the Fresno Yosemite International Airport. The picture went viral on social media, striking a nerve with many of our viewers. The image showed lots of trash piling up, something many residents are seeing more and more of.
