During first full year as Elk Grove mayor, Singh-Allen exercises influence in securing large donations from patrons



Although she has held elected office for close to 10 years, most of them as a Trustee with the Elk Grove Unified School District, Elk Grove Mayor Bobbie Singh-Allen was not compelled to high-level fundraising. With her first reelection campaign for 2022 already underway, Singh-Allen wasted no time gearing up her reelection campaign, reflected by her strong fundraising results in 2021.

In her California Form 460 filed earlier this week with the Elk Grove City Clerk, Singh-Allen reported receiving $168,506, of which $2,500 was nonmonetary. Most of Singh-Allen's fundraising happened in the six months ending December 31, where she collected $112,206 from political patrons.

While Singh-Allen had several individual donations, as with most newly elected officeholders, Singh-Allen has now pivoted to contributions from real estate developers and various other business interests to fund her campaign.   

Among real estate interests, Singh-Allen collected the following:
  • Chrysanthy T. Demos Investments - $5,000
  • D& S Development - $2,000
  • Elliot Homes - $1,000
  • Kamilios Companies - $3,500
  • Laguna Gateway Phase 2 - $2,500
  • MP Elk Grove, LLC (Gary Pinkston) - $4,800
  • Reynolds & Brown - $1,000
  • Richland Investments - $2,500
  • Sofia L. Tsakopoulus Investments - $5,000
  • Taylor & Wiley - $1,500
  • Angelo Tsakopoulus Investments - $2,500
  • Allen Construction Expeditors - $4,900
  • Angelo Tsakopoulus and Affiliated Entities - $5,000
  • Burrell Consulting - $2,000
Businesses
  • Bob's Club - $4,900
  • American Hospitality Services - $4,900
  • P G & E - $1,000
  • Republic Services - $1,000
  • River City Waste Recyclers - $4,900
  • Thomas Law group $1,000
  • Tera Investments - $1,500
  • Union Pacific Railroad - $1,000
  • Urban Core Development - $1,000
  • Delta Dental Group, dba Ora Denistry - $4,900
Business interest groups
  • California Real Estate Political Action Committee - $1,000
  • Committee for Home Ownership $1,000
  • Sacramento Metropolitan Chamber - $4,900
  • Californias for a Growing Economy and Safe Streets - $1,000
 Unions
  • Northern California District Council of Laborers - $1,000
  • Operatiog Engineers Local 3 - $1,000 
  • DRIVE Committee (Teamsters Union) - $1,000
  • Sheet Metal Workers Local 104 - $2,500
  • Amalgamated Transit Union - $2,500

Singh-Allen received 80 donations, 51 of which were $1,000 or more. There were contributions from 30 individual patrons. 

Even though Singh-Allen has raised a substantial war chest, she has no declared opponents to date for the November general election. 

Interestingly, former Elk Grove Mayor Gary Davis made a donation of $100. Davis is rumored to be prepared for District 4 on the Elk Grove City Council if Councilmember Stephanie Nguyen runs for the District 10 seat in the California Assembly.

Someone should probably tell Gary "High Roller" Davis that it will probably cost more than $100 to buy an endorsement from BSA!
