Sal Quintero: Industrial Parks Bring Jobs to South Fresno, but Air Issues Must Be Mitigated



Share with friends

Fresno County Supervisor Sal Quintero, who represents District 3 encompassing the city’s south side and nearby communities, sits down with GV Wire’s David Taub to discuss the issues and the upcoming election in which he seeks a third term.

During their conversation, Quintero said that industrial parks are vital for southern neighborhoods because they provide jobs and offer an opportunity for residents to walk, cycle, or ride a bus to work.

However, Quintero said, new industrial development must mitigate any additional air pollution it adds.
