"I'm here today with my family, my friends, colleagues to announce my candidacy for District 4 City Council. I want the people of Fresno to step up and make a difference in their community," said Paul Caprioglio.
Caprioglio would replace current city councilman Larry Westerlund if he wins the election. Westerlund, who endorsed Caprioglio today, cannot run again, because of term limits.
This wouldn't be Caprioglio's first time on the Fresno City Council. He served in Westerlund's seat for a year in 2008 and 2009 while Westerlund was serving in the Navy. He will face former legislative staffer Susan Good who unsuccessfully challenged Westerlund in 2008.
