Fred Strong has announced that he is seeking re-election to the Paso Robles City Council.
Strong, who is the city’s mayor pro-tem, said he is running for a fourth four-year term on a platform of infrastructure improvements in transportation, water and sewer services. He said he is known for doing his homework and staying on top of all major issues before the city and for his nearly perfect attendance record at council meetings. He is also a former chairman of the policy committee for the League of California Cities.
He said he has worked to keep government local by limiting the powers of regional government and the state and keeping major funding decisions as close to the people as possible.
Strong is the second person to announce his candidacy for the Paso Robles City Council. Recently, incumbent Steve Gregory announced he will seek to keep the seat on the council he was appointed to in 2014.
