|Scherman enters Elk Grove mayoral race.|
Scherman, a three term council member and one of two original council members since Elk Grove incorporated in 2000, will enter the race against fellow council member Gary Davis, Jerry Braxmeyer and Greg Higley.
Scherman's decision to enter the mayoral race comes on the heels of her third place finish in the primary race for the California State Assembly. In her statement Scherman cited her experience and commitment to Elk Grove.
“It’s obvious that Elk Grove needs leadership that won’t take orders from Sacramento and will focus on creating jobs and a vibrant economy,” Scherman said. “I have the background and experience to help move our city forward and do what is right for the people of Elk Grove."
“We have many projects like the community center and the languishing Elk Grove mall that need someone who will work day and night to provide the vision and leadership to get the job done," Scherman said. "Our next Mayor needs to be focused on the future of our city.”
