With his June primary first place showing and the November general election on the very near horizon, Elk Grove Vice Mayor Jim Cooper officially kicked off his race for the California Assembly Ninth District seat yesterday in Elk Grove.

With the opening of newer, larger offices near his previous headquarters on Laguna Boulevard, Cooper is gearing up for the November election against his fellow Democrat, Sacramento City Council Member Darrell Fong. Even though Cooper and Fong are both Democrats, they were the top two finishers in the five-way June primary and will advance to the November general election.

With a large group of volunteers and supporters, Cooper thanked everyone for their support in his June first-place finish victory and stressed the importance of maintaining that momentum.

"No one ever does it alone," Cooper told his campaign volunteers. "If you guys weren't doing it, it would never happen, so I appreciate that."

Among elected officials on hand were Elk Grove Council Member Steve Detrick, Cosumnes Community Services Director Rod Brewer and former Sacramento City Council Member Robbie Walters. Also attending the function was Cooper's 2007 appointment to the Elk Grove Planning Commission and current Elk Grove City Council District 4 candidate, Nancy Chaires.

Cooper lent his support to Chaires noting her broad-based support in Elk Grove and said she would be an ideal addition to the city council.   

"That was one of the best decisions I ever made for Elk Grove," Cooper said of his appointing Chaires. "She knows her stuff...she is the best."

Cooper's campaign office is located at 8238 Laguna Blvd., Suite 200, Elk Grove. More information on his campaign is available here
