In the race for Elk Grove District 1 City Council seat, challenger Ali Moua received a financial shot-in-the-arm in recent days with large contributions from labor unions.

Previous to this, the majority of Moua's campaign contributions have been generated from individual contributions. Long active in Elk Grove politics, Plumbers and Pipefitters 447 is a longtime supporter of Mayor Steve Ly, who has offered assistance to Moua and other Elk Grove candidates in recent mailers which has been reported as a $1,849 in-kind contribution. 

In recent days Suen also received a labor union contribution of $1,000 from the California Conference Board of Amalgamated Transit Union.
