Final maps for California Senate, Assembly districts set; no declared Assembly candidates yet for Elk Grove's district

On Monday night, the California Citizens Redistricting Commission released the final maps for the Board of Equalization, California Senate, California Assembly, and the U.S. Congress.

The maps for Elk Grove's representation in the Senate and Assembly changed little from boundaries released days prior. Both districts have Elk Grove paired with Sacramento.

While there are four declared Democratic candidates for State Senate District 8, no one has formally announced for Assembly District 10. Among local politicians reportedly interested in running for the 10th District is Elk Grove City Councilmember Stephanie Nguyen.

Elk Grove is currently in the 9th Assembly District and is represented by Jim Cooper, who is expected to announce his candidacy for Sacramento County Sheriff. By all appearances, Nguyen, and other Democrats, are deferring their formal announcements for the District 10 seat until Cooper makes his declaration.

The current 10th district representative Kevin McCarty is reportedly moving and will run for reelection in Assembly District 6, covering north Sacramento. Although Nguyen is the only candidate to express interest, with an open seat several others are expected to enter the contest.  

As 2021 comes to an end, there will be just over five months until the June 7 primary.  The clock is ticking, and when Cooper announces, others seeking the 10 Assembly District will jump in and be in a rush to get their campaigns in gear.
