Second candidate enters 2022 race for District 2 Elk Grove

A second candidate has filed candidacy paperwork for the 2022 Elk Grove City Council District 2 race.

In documents recorded with the Elk Grove City Clerk's office, Elk Grove Planning Commissioner Sergio Robles has stated his intention to fill the seat being vacated by Councilmember Pat Hume, who is running for Sacramento County Board of Supervisors. Hume has represented the district which includes rural portions of Elk Grove and the Old Town district.  

A relative newcomer to the Elk Grove political scene, Robles was appointed to the planning commission by former mayor Steve Ly. Robles replaced Frank Maita, who resigned last year.

At the time of his appointment last October, Robles was a resident of District 3. Robles is currently a field representative for Rep. Ami Bera.

With Robles' entry, there are now two candidates for the District 2 seat. Earlier, Cosumnes Community Services District Director Rod Brewer entered the race to replace Hume.

Although the city council positions are officially non-partisan, Brewer and Robles are both Democrats. As a Republican, Hume has represented the district since 2006 that trends more conservative in voting patterns and, when he leaves office, will be the longest-serving Elk Grove City Council member.   

District 2 is currently the largest geographic district and will be subjected to the decennial redistricting process before the November 2022 election which will likely change its borders. The 2022 election will be the first by-district election for District 2. 

The candidate filing deadline for the November 2022 election is about one year from now.
