|Jerry Braxmeyer wins local Republican endorsement|
At the July meeting of the Elk Grove Republican Club Cosumnes Community Service Director Michelle Orrock and Elk Grove City Council Member Steve Detrick received unanimous support in their bids for re-election.
"Both of these elected officials have been involved with our club from the beginning and have worked to help elect Republicans on all levels," Elk Grove Republican President Chris Orrock said. "We believe that in their respective races that they deserve to be re-elected for another term in office."
The club also endorsed Jerry Braxmeyer in the race for Elk Grove Mayor. These endorsements join the Cosumnes Republican Assembly in endorsing the Republican slate of candidates for the November election. The Cosumnes Republican Assembly endorsed all three of these candidates at its May meeting.
Currently Detrick and Orrock have no announced opponents while Braxmeyer will face Elk Grove Council members Gary Davis and Sophia Scherman as well as local business owner Greg Higley in four way race to become Elk Grove's first directly elected mayor.
"Our club agreed with the other Republican club in Elk Grove that Jerry Braxmeyer is the best candidate to become the first Mayor of Elk Grove," stated Orrock. "It is time for a change on the council and Jerry Braxmeyer will bring his fiscal conservative background to help lead Elk Grove into the future."
"Our membership felt it critical to get ahead of the curve in these races and endorse Orrock, Detrick and Braxmeyer," Orrock said. "This will allow the club to begin dedicating resources to the campaigns as early as possible."
