Candidate Bill Harrison

For Mayor, City of Fremont

Dear Neighbor,

Growing up in Fremont, my parents showed me how to be a leader. They, along with my friend and former Mayor, Bob Wasserman, taught me the importance of giving back and how to make our City even better.

I've applied those lessons of leadership running our family accounting business and serving on the City Council.

During my service, Fremont has become a regional hub for emerging technologies and has received millions of dollars for transportation and infrastructure projects, including the BART extension to Warm Springs.

I'm proud to have been born and raised in Fremont and my wife and I are raising our children here. They attend Fremont's great public schools, just as I did.

As Mayor, I will work to protect small businesses, bring high-paying jobs to Fremont, provide the best schools for our children and create a safer community by investing in public safety and our neighborhoods.

My vision for Fremont is simple, a City that offers ALL residents a great place to live, work, shop, play and raise a family.

Below is more information about me. If you have any questions about the campaign or my positions on the issues, please contact me at or visit

As a father, small business owner and Councilmember, I will work with you to move Fremont forward to a brighter future. I'd appreciate your vote.
