Office of Community and Economic Development

OCED masthead


Notes From Ish


Ismael Herrera



As we embraced the plentiful rains that drenched us this past month, our team was busy out in the region carrying out the work of the office. Whether informing residents in rural communities about low-cost internet or farmers at the 52nd World Ag Expo about our business programs, our weekday warriors braved the elements to deliver important services and resources to stakeholders in the San Joaquin Valley. We also received good news about a funding proposal partnership with the Fresno Metro Black Chamber Foundation, which is a collaboration we are excited to begin! Lastly this month, we introduce you to another one of our student employees who help keep the OCED engine running.

Until next month…

Ismael D. Herrera, Jr.
Interim Executive Director
