Modesto Chamber Endorses Ted Brandvold for Mayor
Modesto, CA – The Board of Directors for the Modesto Chamber of Commerce has voted to endorse Ted Brandvold for Mayor. Earlier in the election cycle members of the Chamber’s Governmental Relations Council interviewed candidates for the city council and mayor’s races. Candidates also completed surveys which were reviewed and considered along with the interview process.
Two well qualified candidates, Ted Brandvold and Garrad Marsh are competing in a runoff election for the office of mayor. Both are long-term residents, both run successful businesses and both hold a deep affection for the city and its residents.
In keeping with the Chamber’s primary mission of promoting an improved quality of life through economic development, the Board of Directors selected the candidate whom we believe will be most collaborative; who related the best plan to involve residents of the city to meet our challenges; and, who best demonstrates the ability to effectively mobilize citizens and groups for common causes. Accordingly, the Board of Directors has determined the best person to lead Modesto for the creation of future jobs is Ted Brandvold.
