Video Voices of Elk Grove - Activist, Residents Demand Elk Grove City Council Not Deny Voters of Civil Rights



February 5, 2017 |  

At the Thursday, February 2 special meeting of the Elk Grove City Council, a council vacancy was filled by appointment. 

After close to five hours of presentations by most of the 20 applicants seeking the appointment as well as public comment, Stephanie Nguyen was appointed to the District 4 seat. The seat was vacated in December, 2016 when Steve Ly vacated it upon his election to Mayor.

During public comment, over 20 people spoke with most of them urging the Council to hold a special election instead of making an appointment to fill the vacancy. Below is a video of some of the comments made.

It is our hope that thoughtful comments can lead to meaningful conversations and provide our readers a means to communicate their thoughts to our elected officials.

On a separate note, we have heard from several readers that page load time is not as quick as desired. We have made some "under-the-hood" changes that should speed up page loading. We still have a few other changes, so with a little time and patience, page loading speed should improve.
