Our candidate for the Fresno County Employees Retirement Association, Franz Criego, soundly defeated nine other candidates to win a seat on the retirement board.
With Criego’s win, SEIU 521 members have effectively clinched the three elected positions on the board. The other two seats are currently held by SEIU members James Hackett and Eulalio “Larry” Gomez.
“As our representative, I promise to hold FCERA accountable for proper management of our retirement funds,” said Franz. “I will give employees a real voice in protecting our pensions and restore a feeling of confidence in the board.”
Franz Criego is a dedicated 521 member and Public Defender for Fresno County.
“I’ve worked with Franz for over 25 years both as a CHP officer and as a senior defense investigator,” said Darren Hise, a Senior Defense Investigator for Fresno County. “Franz will bring a strong voice for the employees to the retirement board.”
