Tate Hill wants to bring his business experience to the Fresno city council. The former CEO of the Fresno Metro Black Chamber of Commerce has announced his intention for the district three seat, currently held by to-be-termed-out Oliver Baines.

Hill sat down with GV Wire for a two-part interview. In part one, we discuss whether the city council should fund a legal defense fund for unauthorized immigrants; his views on a “sanctuary city,” and what policies he supports to help build Fresno’s housing supply.

District three covers southwest Fresno. Hill ran for the seat in 2010, but fell in the primary (with Baines winning his first term that year).

One other candidates GV Wire knows about is community leader Barigye McCoy and educator Daren Miller. We hope to speak with him in the future, as well as other candidates.

Stay tuned later this week for part two, where we talk about where to spend the $70 million in Cap & Trade funds.
