VIDEO - NEST protesters demonstrate at Elk Grove mayor's campaign celebration

A group of about 50 protesters demonstrated at an event held by Elk Grove Mayor Steve Ly. The event was Ly's 2018 campaign victory celebration on Saturday, February 23 at California Northstate University, and the protesters were from Elk Grove-based NEST - Neighbors Ensuring Stonelake Transparency.

NEST was organized by Elk Grove residents in opposition to a $750 million, 270-bed hospital proposed by California Northstate University, a for-profit educational venture. Ly, as well as other members of the Elk Grove City Council, have expressed support for the project and the hospital's location in the Stonelakes neighborhood even though it has not formally been submitted to the city for approval.
