Ly Targets Elk Grove Party Partisans With Recent Mailer

Although the candidates running for the Elk Grove City Council District 4 seat appear on the ballot as a non-partisan race, all four have clearly signaled their party alliances.

On the Democratic side are Nancy Chaires and Steve Ly, while Daniel Jimenez and Nayyar Sarfaraz occupy the Republican side.

With this in mind, in his last mailer, Ly targeted registered Democratic voters in Elk Grove. In the mailer Ly includes endorsement from two of his party mentors, Assembly Member Roger Dickinson and Elk Grove Mayor Gary Davis.

It will be interesting in the post-mortem analysis of this election to see if Ly's use of both, with Dickinson in particular, will have helped his candidacy.

Another great reason NOT to vote for Ly. Corrupt politicians club. Ly, you're making a big mistake aligning yourself with Davis.

Didn't Nancy get the south county dems endorsement?

Another Straw Poll? Do we have to be reminded of the last results. It was Ly who won by a landslide by massing his army of voters, driving enormous traffic to Elk Grove News.
I think the results was 179 votes to Nancy's 17. I don't think this will be fair to Nancy Chaires and the other Candidates.

Not trying to be funny but the mailer looked like a weight loss advertisement when I got it in the mail.

Ly keeps using Gary Davis in all of his mailers, it's kind of getting old.

Having the mayor's endorsement doesn't do much for me.

I got this mailer the other day, I thought it was a weight loss advertisement when I first looked at it.

Ly keeps using the same Gary Davis endorsement on all of his mailers, sorry but we need more than that to get anyone to vote for him.

Most of Elk Grove doesn't even know who the mayor is, they probably think KJ is the Mayor.

Gary Davis received almost 50% of the vote with 6 people running. I think that makes him pretty damn popular. For his re-election nobody even talked about filing against him.

Steve Ly is smart to ride Gary as long and far as it will take him.

I don't agree, it sounds like you drink the Mayor's koolaid all day long.
