Tomorrow marks the start of the 45th Annual Capitol-to-Capitol lobbying trip to Washington D.C. organized by the Sacramento Metro Chamber of Commerce. As it has since its founding, a delegation of Elk Grove City Council and staff members will be part of a group of Sacramento region elected officials and business people descending on the nation's capitol in search of Federal dollars.
Elk Grove's delegation will include all council members with the exception of Mayor Gary Davis, and city staff members Laura Gill, Kara Reddig and Richard Shepard. In their meeting leading up to next week's visit, council members and staff both suggested they will focus on transportation funding, with an emphasis on the Kammerer Road portion of the Southeast Connector project.
Elk Grove City's seven-person delegation is budgeted to cost taxpayers $23,970. Typically the delegation also participates in breakfast, luncheon and dinner meetings provided by sponsor of the event, which this year includes, among others, Teichert and Sutter Health.
