Pedrozo says he proved himself a leader during his nine years on the council. After winning his seat in 2009 during the recession, he says he helped bring financial stability back to the city by pushing projects like the ACE Train. The planned direct rail link from Merced to Sacramento, “put the wheels back on” to get the city moving forward again. Campus Parkway was also part of the transportation infrastructure he championed during his council tenure.
“I believe we need a supervisor with a track record of getting things done,” Pedrozo told a crowd of supporters, along with local media members. “We need a supervisor that will be a partner with the city of Merced, as well as other stakeholders in the community, so we can get things done for those we represent.”
