Another Announces Intention Online
With over two and a half years before the November 2014, the first candidates for one of the two open seats on the Elk Grove City Council has filed papers to enter the race.
According to information posted on the Elk Grove City Clerk's webpage, David Conner has filed to make a run at the District 4 seat. District 4 is currently occupied by Gary Davis.
Davis is running for Mayor next November and if he were to win, that seat would be vacated. To fill that potential vacancy the council could make an appointment to fill the seat until the next election or hold a special election.
Another Elk Grove resident, Todd Elving, posted a comment on the Internet story today saying he is running for the council but did not indicate which of the two open seats he will seek. Elving was active with the Occupy Elk Grove group but has subsequently resigned from the group.
