The fifth candidate for Mayor Aziz Akbari profile

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.

It looks like the political season is about to begin as mayoral candidates gear up for November. As of now, the big three contenders for the vacancy are former councilmember Steve Cho, Councilmember Bill Harrison, and Councilmember Anu Natarajan.

Cho has already been meeting with folks seeking endorsments and contributions since the beginning of this year. Cho already has a website up and running. Quote from Cho’ website:

No matter how large or small a city is, the Mayor must be available to every single citizen who wants to voice a concern. This is my single most important commitment to you.

Literally overnight, Councilmember Anu Natarajan’s website has been updated to include details of her run for Mayor. Here is a link to Natarajan’s website. Quote from Natarajan’s website:

I am pleased to announce that today I am kicking off my campaign for Fremont Mayor, and I hope you will join me! I am running for Mayor because Fremont is a great city, and I want to lead Fremont into an even brighter future.

Councilmember Bill Harrison has also been making moves, and everyone assumes he will be announcing soon as well.

Stay tuned…the 2012 year is about to heat up.
