UPLAND – Planning commissioner and real estate broker Bill Velto has announced his intention to run for City Council in November.

Velto, vice president and managing broker for Tarbell Realtors, is seeking to fill a council seat that will be left vacant when Councilman Ken Willis retires at the end of his term.

“I’m certain my relationships within the Inland Empire will lead to additional business coming to Upland. With additional business comes additional revenue,” Velto said.

He has lived in the city for more than 50 years and has been in the real estate industry in Upland for more than 20 years.

Velto employs more than 105 agents in Upland and his escrow company employs an additional 14 people.
