New special election date (updated)

There is a new date for the local special election for Fresno City Council (Northwest) District 2. The new election date is Tuesday, August 13th! It had originally been scheduled for June. The delay seems to have been twofold: First, it took a little while longer than expected to finishing counting all the votes. Second, there is a process and time frame given to the outgoing representative in order to allow for a smooth transition to his new role. Steve Brandau’s last official City Council meeting was Thursday, April 4th.

So mark your calendars and make sure you are registered to vote. Michael Karbassi is running for this open seat and if you haven’t heard of him you can visit his website below:
