Position Papers
Fresno County has a critical role to play in economic development, to help generate sustainable, good-paying jobs for Valley families. The Fresno County Board of Supervisors is working diligently to provide leadership, as well as the staffing and financial resources necessary, to address this challenging problem.
Our commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of troubled youths is a sound business decision, which will save the lives of many of our young people and millions of taxpayer dollars in the process.
By getting our priorities straight, Fresno County will be in a stronger position to deal with future budget shortfalls. Over the past several years, California counties have received many financial blows from the State. Fresno County has demonstrated that it is possible to maintain essential services, maintain a fiscally sound position, and pass a balanced budget on time. It is time for the State to do the same.
