The Fresno City Employees Association voted unanimously Tuesday night to endorse former Police Chief Jerry Dyer for Mayor of Fresno in the upcoming March 3 primary.

“I am pleased to announce that at the Fresno City Employees Association membership meeting last night, the members voted overwhelmingly to support Jerry Dyer for Mayor in the upcoming election,” FCEA President Sam Frank said. “Not a single member in attendance voted no. Before the vote, members cited his many years of dedicated service to the Police Department and his experience as Chief overseeing this large Department during the most difficult financial times.”

FCEA represents the non-supervisory white collar employees of the City of Fresno.

Prior to FCEA’s endorsement, Dyer received the backing of four other unions representing employees of the City of Fresno: the Fresno Police Officers Association, Fresno City Firefighters Local 753, Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1027, and City of Fresno Professional Employees Association.

“I am so grateful to have the support of Fresno’s hardest-working employees,” Dyer said. “I look forward to working with each one of them as Mayor to ensure that City Hall runs efficiently, our streets get fixed, and we continue to supply clean, affordable water to all residents. Their support of my vision for One Fresno will ensure that we will rise together.”
