The fifth candidate for Mayor Aziz Akbari profile

17 Aug

Aziz Akbari is the fifth candidate in the Fremont Mayor’s race. Others include Councilmembers Bill Harrison and Anu Natarajan, former city councilmember Steve Cho, perennial candidate Linda Susoev, and the latests Aziz Akbari. The Fremont Bulletin did a nice profile on Aziz Akbari. Here are some noteworthy quotes from Aziz:

“Things in Fremont have been going really slow,” he said. “We have so much going on here, and there’s so much potential, I really want to get things going.”

Akbari said he would like to restart Fremont’s corporate sector and attract more businesses, as well as increase retail options. He said he is already in contact with a number of corporate chief executive officers and retail franchise owners.

“Other candidates and council members have been on the council for years,” Akbari said. “I don’t feel like they’ve delivered. They give great talks each year, but they’re not delivering, and I think Fremont needs a new face. I have the skills and know-how to get things done.”

Aziz’s entry is definitely a game changer in the Mayor’s race.

    He makes a good point about potential and getting things done. I have been overall disapointed in this City Council, what the hell were they doing chasing the Oakland Athletics Baseball team. How much resources were used, how much money was spoent on this fantasy persuit.
    During this same time a major Fremont Industry were transferring there employees to Livermore, they said Fremont was out of room????????
    Please no more rhetoric and more action.

    He makes a GREAT point – – “”Other candidates and council members have been on the council for years,” Akbari said. “I don’t feel like they’ve delivered. They give great talks each year, but they’re not delivering, and I think Fremont needs a new face . . . .”

    There is very little to differentiate the other 4 candidates : Aziz on the other hand gives a fresh , youthful , new option .
