Sac DA candidate Mathews, BOS hopeful Moreno to hold 'Mothers & Mentors' canvassing

With ballots to start appearing in the coming days and Mother's Day this Sunday, Alana Mathews and Jaclyn Moreno are conducting canvassing efforts to bolster their campaigns. The theme of the event is "Mothers & Mentors." 

Mathews is running for the Sacramento County District Attorney, and Moreno is vying for the District 5 seat on the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors. Their canvassing event starts at 10 a.m. tomorrow at Moreno's campaign office, which she shares with California Assembly District 10 candidate Eric Guerra. 

Mathews and Moreno are both attempting to make history in their respective races. If Mathews prevails over Thien Ho, she would be the first African American to be Sacramento County District Attorney. If elected, Moreno would be the first woman to represent South Sacramento County on the Board of Supervisors.

Both candidates have noted the experiences that make them well suited for their respective offices. Mathews, who worked at the Sacramento District Attorney's office, highlights the importance of mentorship, especially for at-risk individuals.

"As a former prosecutor, I mentored women on parole and at-risk youth because I believe transforming lives is just as important as protecting them," Mathew said. "It's time for a change in the District Attorney's Office and a leader who is just as committed to preventing crime in the community as we are to prosecuting crime in the courtroom because we cannot incarcerate our way to safety."

Moreno, who has served as a Director with the Cosumnes Community Services District since 2018, said the role of mothers makes them ideally suited to hold elected office.

"The jobs that women historically undertake in their homes and in their communities have value, and those skills directly translate to serving the community through elected office," Moreno said. "We know that when women are elected, more family-oriented policies are passed and communities thrive."

With only two candidates in the District Attorney race, the winner of the June 7 primary will secure that position. The District 5 Board of Supervisors race has four candidates, and if no one exceeds 50-percent of the popular vote, the top two will advance to the November general election.
