Two Elk Grove-based candidates involved in highly competitive races against fellow Democrats both announced significant endorsements this week.

Elk Grove Vice Mayor Jim Cooper, who is in a five-person race that includes two other Democratic office holders for California's Ninth District Assembly seat, announced he has received the endorsement of the Dolores Huerta Democratic Club.

In making their endorsement, club president Daniel Savala noted Cooper's commitment to civil rights, economic justice and support of labor during his 14 years on the Elk Grove City Council.

"That's why we're proud to support him," Savala's endorsement said. "In the Assembly, Cooper will be a champion for civil rights, continuing the efforts of Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta." 

For Elk Grove Planning Commissioner Nancy Chaires, who like Cooper is facing a fellow Democrat in her bid for the Elk Grove City Council District 4 seat, her most recent endorsement came from the Sacramento County Young Democrats. In their endorsement, club president Samantha Farmer noted Chaires' lengthy public service and community involvement.

I'm happy to have the support of a dynamic group of young people that is so committed to bringing about the change we need to see in our government," Chaires said. "Transparency and trust in government are not only what Elk Grove residents want and deserve, they are also key to a vibrant and healthy economy."

Chaires, who is the current chair of the planning commission, was appointed by Cooper seven years ago.
