Nguyen To Hold First Fundraiser For 2018 Elk Grove City Council Bid

November 28, 2017 |  

In her first significant move to raise money for her 2018 campaign, Elk Grove City Council Member Stephanie Nguyen has announced a fundraising event.

Appointed to the District 4 seat of the Elk Grove City Council earlier this year, Nguyen will hold her event on Monday, December 4 at the Falls Event Center. Nguyen is seeking election to the full four-year term.

Last January's appointment of Nguyen came following the 2016 election of the seat's former occupant, Steve Ly, to Elk Grove mayor. Ly was elected to the seat in 2014.

Among the four current seats and the mayor's post, the District 4position as it is now, has had the most occupants. Between the city's incorporation in 2000 and 2006 the seat was occupied by Dan Briggs.

Briggs was ousted in the 2006 election by former Elk Grove mayor and council member Gary Davis who won reelection in 2010. Davis left the seat in 2012 to become the city's first directly elected mayor.

Following Davis' ascension to mayor, the Elk Grove City Council decided to appoint a replacement rather than hold a special election to fill the vacancy. After the city council deadlocked, Council Member Pat Hume suggested Bob Trigg as a compromise replacement. 

Trigg, a retired superintendent with the Elk Grove Unified School District, was appointed after he committed to be a placeholder until the 2014 election. In 2014, Ly was elected to the seat but vacated it in 2016 when he was elected mayor, which led to the appointment of Nguyen. 

One of three Democratic party members on the city council, Nguyen currently has no announced opponents for next year's race.
