In what is becoming an Elk Grove-centric contest, a third candidate for the District 5 seat on the Sacramento Board of Supervisors announced his intentions yesterday. In an Elk Grove Citizen story, Elk Grove District 2 City Councilmember Pat Hume announced his intention to run for the seat being vacated by Don Nottoli.

Hume joins former Elk Grove City Councilmember and Mayor Gary Davis and Cosumnes Community Services District Director Jaclyn Moreno to replace Notolli. The three Elk Grove-based candidates are vying to fill the seat that has not seen a competitive race since 1994, when Nottoli beat former Elk Grove Unified School District Trustee Kay Albiani.

Republican Hume, who was first elected to the city council in 2006, will be the longest-tenured council member with 16-years of experience when he leaves that seat in 2022. Hume, who has been considering a run for several months, also announced endorsements by Rancho Cordova Republican Mayor Garrett Gatewood and Elk Grove Democratic Mayor Bobbie Singh-Allen.

In her endorsement announced last night, Singh-Allen cited her long-term friendship with Hume and his ability to work with others of differing ideology.

"He doesn’t see party labels that divide people but a burning desire to always engage in conversation that will lead to tangible solutions for the betterment of our community and our families," Singh-Allen wrote in her endorsement statement (entire endorsement statement posted below).        

While Hume enters the race, Jaclyn Moreno has maintained a steady pace of campaign activity on her social media pages and garnering support for her candidacy.

Along with her feeds, Moreno recently appeared on the Twitter account for Sacramento City Councilmember Angelique Ashby, who is running for the California State Senate seat currently occupied by Dr. Richard Pan, who will be termed out in 2022. 
 
Contacted by email for comment on the recent developments and her campaign, Moreno wrote, "I look forward to running my campaign on the issues that matter to our community - rebuilding the economy, housing that’s affordable, addressing homelessness, increasing access to healthcare, specifically mental healthcare, and providing more opportunities for our youth."

The third candidate, Gary Davis, has gone dark in campaign activities. His last Facebook campaign update was on March 31.

Additionally, his campaign webpage is no longer active. A view of garydavis2022.org shows the image posted below.  

Two different sources claim that Davis will be dropping out of the race. Email inquiries last night to Davis' campaign address were returned with a failure notice, and another message to his non-campaign email inquiring about the status of his candidacy was not answered.  



Pat Hume Endorsement Statement from Elk Grove Mayor Bobbie Singh Allen


If there is anything that the pandemic has reminded me and likely many of us, is the value of family and true friendships.


I have made my decision to support Councilmember Pat Hume for the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors race. This has been a decision made because of mutual trust and a valued friendship. He has stood by me during my political journey and I proudly stand next to him.


I first met Pat 15 years ago when he was running for Elk Grove City Council. I did not vote for him. I supported the incumbent, who was a friend and from my point of view was doing a good job.


Shortly after defeating the incumbent, I reached out to Pat to get to know him and his vision for Elk Grove. Rather than shun me as a political adversary, he reciprocated the olive branch. A friendship was forged. 


Pat had been a brilliant Planning Commissioner, he has been a leader in our City Council. He understands complex planning, transportation issues, job growth, housing, and public safety issues. He is present and visible in our community and not just on election season. He doesn’t see party labels that divide people but a burning desire to always engage in conversation that will lead to tangible solutions for the betterment of our community and our families.


My endorsement of Pat is my desire to not just support a long, trusted friend, but a conviction that putting community above politics is a tradition worth continuing.

Let me see if I can you my multi-lingual skills to translate this quote from the mayor:

"I first met Pat 15 years ago when he was running for Elk Grove City Council. I did not vote for him. I supported the incumbent, who was a friend and from my point of view was doing a good job.

Shortly after defeating the incumbent, I reached out to Pat to get to know him and his vision for Elk Grove. Rather than shun me as a political adversary, he reciprocated the olive branch. A friendship was forged".


Let's see, I translate her happy talk to mean "I'll kick my old friend who lost the election to the curb and cozy up to the winner for my own personal gain".

If the mayor has anything in common with Donald J. Trump, which she does, it is she she has loyalty to no one but herself. She's making Steve Ly and Gary Davis look like a kindergartners!
