On Tuesday January 3rd, 2017, Lee Brand was sworn in as Fresno's newest Mayor. Ashley Swearengin was the previous mayor who served two terms. 

Brand has some big plans for the city, with one of the main issues he hopes to implement immediately is a more effective rental housing inspection program. This was mentioned just moments after he was sworn in at the Tuesday morning ceremony. 

According to Brand's Facebook page, "First day on the job! Thanks to everyone who showed up this morning as I took the official oath of office. We're already working hard for you and Fresno!"

The community is excited for the future. Welcome, Lee!
