I am writing to endorse Fred Strong for re-election to the Paso Robles City Council.

Fred's knowledge of local and national transportation issues both passenger and freight is vital for California, Paso Robles and the nation.

I have had the pleasure of working with Fred on the National Association of Regional Councils' Board of Directors for 5 years and have been very impressed.

Fred has the ability to work with diverse interests and to get things done. His leadership style and depth of experiences are a welcome addition to our council and to yours.

Please support Fred for City Council.
