Porterville City Council Candidate
Pete McCracken
(559) 784-6192


Why am I running for reelection?

I have enjoyed living in Porterville since 1976 and I have been honored to be able to serve the people of Porterville for more than 14 of those years. Porterville has grown from 16,000 to over 55,000 with a very diverse population.

I promise to continue to represent that diversity to the best of my ability because diversity strengthens Porterville.

Having been a councilman, vice mayor, and a mayor, I know firsthand the restraints put on our community by Sacramento and the Federal government.

Our leaders must know how to work together to gain the best results for Porterville. I know how to work with other council people, with staff and with the county for the betterment of Porterville. I have an excellent track record in putting Porterville first.

With your help I will continue to put my 50+ years of business and public service experience to work for the betterment of Porterville. I would like to continue to bring decorum and a high standard of ethics to the city council and I can only do that with your continued support.

If honesty, integrity, and experience is what you want, then I need your vote on June 3rd.
