With exactly six weeks until election day, Elk Grove City Councilman Steve Detrick kicked-off his campaign for a third term representing the City's Third District. This year Detrick faces two challengers, unlike 2012 where he ran unopposed. 

Held at the Falls Event Center in Elk Grove, close to 100 people gathered for the event. Among supporters in attendance were several elected officials including Assembymember Jim Cooper, Sacramento County Supervisor Don Notolli, Elk Grove Mayor Gary Davis, Elk Grove City Councilmen Pat Hume and Darren Suen, Cosumnes Community Services District Directors Rich Lozano, Michelle Orrock, and Rod Woods, and former Sacramento County Supervisor Jimmy Yee.

Introducing Detrick was Cooper, who served with Detrick for six years on the City Council prior to his 2014 election to the California Assembly. Cooper told the audience that Detrick got into politics for the right reasons and the people of the Elk Grove have benefited from his service.

"I have respect for Steve for what he has done for Elk Grove," Cooper said. "He was a voice for his neighborhood, he was a leader, and he really showed his leadership skills then."

Also speaking on behalf of Detrick was fellow councilman Pat Hume. Having served with Detrick for eight years, Hume noted the diversity of supporters in the hall.

"If you look around at the diversity in this room, from the different walks of life, the different lives, different background, different interest, they are all here for on reason, and that is to get this man back into office," Hume said. 

In his presentation to the gathering, Detrick expressed gratitude for the supporters and stressed he will continue working for Elk Grove residents. He also noted the variety of endorsements he received include public safety, Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce, region builders, Building Industry Associations, and several construction trade unions. 

"We have a tremendous amount of diversity in our community," he said. "That is the type of diversity we have her to support the event."
