Councilmember Drew Bessinger

“Clovis is a special place to live and raise a family, and this does not occur by accident.  It takes long-range planning and a commitment to the citizens and our future.  As a 35 year Clovis resident and a 29 year servant of our citizens, as a new Councilmember I plan on making decisions that will be consistent with keeping Clovis ‘Clovis’ for our future generations to enjoy.”
