Quick – someone give the bashful police chief a boost to his self-esteem.

He almost certainly would then jump into the 2016 Fresno mayor’s race.

Jerry Dyer on Monday said he’s heard the rumors.

He’s definitely going after the job of termed-out Mayor Ashley Swearengin.

He’ll soon call a news conference to make the news official.

He’ll shake up local political campaigns in a way we haven’t seen since the 2000 donnybrook between Hollywood actor Alan Autry and former boy wonder Dan Whitehurst.

But Dyer remains maddeningly elusive on the big question: Are you running?
