SACRAMENTO, CA – The Voter Protection Project (VPP), the largest national PAC focused on electing voting rights champions congratulates Andrew Janz on his appointment to serve as Fresno City Attorney and expresses deep gratitude to him in founding VPP and serving on the board since its inception in 2019. As Andrew begins his new role with the City of Fresno he will step down from the board effective December 1, 2022.
“We are so excited to see Andrew Janz be selected as the next City Attorney of Fresno,” said Heather Greven, Executive Director of VPP. “Without Andrew, there would be no VPP. It’s been my privilege to work alongside him to help countless Democrats across the country win their elections and fight to pass legislation that will help protect and expand voting rights for every American. I know first-hand that Andrew won’t shy away from the challenges this new role will present and that the people of Fresno are getting a true public servant as their new City Attorney.”
“As City Attorney, I must avoid any appearance, either real or perceived, that the Office of City Attorney is being used to further a political agenda,” said Andrew Janz. He added, “to that end, I will be stepping down from VPP’s board of directors and turning over all operational control to other stakeholders. My decision to divest was made in conjunction with my accepting the new position.”
Founded in 2019, the Voter Protection Project works to confront the architects of voter suppression directly at the ballot box. VPP has taken on the fight to defeat voter suppression state-by-state by electing Democrats, the only party fighting to defend and expand voting rights. Since 2020, VPP has raised over $12 million to support candidates for office at all levels that champion fair and representative elections.
