It’s hard to get a straight answer from Fresno County Supervisor Phil Larson when you ask him if he wants another term on the board.
He’s in his third term now. He’ll turn 81 before next year’s November election. And though he hasn’t publicly talked about his future, some think he’s ready to leave politics.
But in what might be his clearest admission yet, Larson has scheduled a fundraiser –- for what else other than a re-election campaign.
The event is Feb. 13.
“I’m the supervisor and I’m going to stay here, and I’m going to stay here a while,” he said.
Larson’s latest campaign filings show he has no debt to pay off and some $50,000 in the bank.
The Kerman resident has been a big supporter of agriculture and has been active in the Republican Party. He represents Fresno County’s rural west side.
