Prolific Sacramento-area Candidate Seventh To Enter Elk Grove Mayoral Race

August 15, 2016 |

According to information posted this afternoon on the Elk Grove City Clerk's webpage, a seventh candidate has drawn nomination papers to enter the Elk Grove Mayoral race. That seventh candidate is Jrmar Jefferson. 

Although Jefferson has never held elected office, it has not been for the lack of trying. Since 2014 the Democratic candidate's name has appeared on at least four different ballots Sacramento-area ballots.

Starting in 2014, Jefferson ran for the Sacramento County Board of Supervisor seat now held by Patrick Kennedy. In 2016 Jefferson appeared on the ballot for three different races including the Sixth Congressional District, the Sacramento County Office of Education and as a member for the Sacramento Democratic Central Committee.

If Jefferson meets the qualifications, he will join three other candidates, Michael Monasky, Kevin Spease, and Tracie Stafford, who have been qualified. Three other candidates including Joel Brouusard, Elk Grove Vice Mayor Steve Ly, and Garrett Smith have drawn papers but have yet to be qualified. 

Because there is no incumbent running for the Mayor's seat, the filing deadline was extended to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, August 17. The filing period for Elk Grove City Council District 1 and 3 seat closed last Friday.
