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.
