Hume kicks-off supervisor advertising campaign in Elk Grove 2022 calendar

Even though he has been a candidate for the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors for several months, Republican Elk Grove City Councilmember Pat Hume has limited his campaign activities to social media and his website. That changed this week with his paid advertisement in the Elk Grove 2022 Town Planner calendar.

Hume placed three advertisements on the March, April, and May pages. The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors District 5 seat will be on the June 7 primary ballot.

With this strategy, Hume follows his city council colleague Kevin Spease who placed ads in the 2020 calendar. Spease, who represents Elk Groves District 3, was first elected in November 2020.

Interestingly, Hume probably placed the ad when he and Democratic rival Cosumnes Community Services District Director Jaclyn Moreno were the only declared candidates for the seat currently held by Don Nottoli. Had they remained the only candidates, a winner would have been determined in June.

In the last month, former Elk Grove Mayor Steve Ly announced his candidacy, which increases the possibility in a three-way race, no candidate will reach the 50-percent plus one threshold needed to avoid a November runoff of the top two finishers. Ly will be running as a non-party preference after resigning from the Democratic party in November. 

The current voting age demographics after redistricting of District 5 by percent are 47 white, 21 Asian Pacific Islander, 18 Hispanic, and 11 Black.
