As part of mandated financial disclosures, Steve Detrick was the first of the five Elk Grove city council members to files his statement of economic interests. Detrick, who is entering the final year of his service as the District 3 representative, filed his disclosure with the Elk Grove City Clerk's office on Thursday, January 16.

Detrick's filing showed he accepted gifts totaling $2,876 during 2019 in 16 different reporting items. All of the gifts were from meals or banquet-type events, many of which included Detrick's spouse.

Seven of the 16 items were meals Detrick and his wife accepted on the annual Cap to Cap lobbying trip sponsored by the Sacramento Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce. The balance of the gifts were for Sacramento area events like Region Businesses Annual BBQ, the Building Industry Association installation dinner, and the Bounty on the Boulevard dinner in Elk Grove, which Pappas Investments provided two meals valued at $150.

Unlike many California city's that prohibit or limit employees from accepting gifts, Elk Grove has no such rules, and thus many employees will be required to file disclosures. In the past several high paid city employees, especially from the city attorney's office and public works department, accepted gifts from vendors doing business with the city. 

Below is Detrick's 2019 statement of economic interest.
