Bermudez, Pastor's candidacies verified; Elk Grove City Council and Mayoral races set

This morning the Elk Grove City Clerk's office verified candidacy papers for two candidates for Elk Grove City Council District 4 and the Mayoral race.  

The District 4 candidate, Giezi (pronounced Jesse) Bermudez, is an 11th-hour candidate who drew his nomination papers one day before the deadline on Thursday, August 11. Mr. Bermudez will face Elk Grove Planning Commissioner Sergio Robles for the opportunity to replace Elk Grove City Councilmember Stephanie Nguyen, who is running for the California State Assembly District 10 seat. 

The District 4 race could be noteworthy because endorsements for Robles could change. Robles appeared to be the establishment selection with endorsements from Elk Grove Mayor Bobbie Singh-Allen, Sacramento County Supervisor Don Nottoli, Sacramento County Sheriff-elect, and Elk Grove City Councilmembers Darren Suen and Nguyen. 

A political newcomer, Bermudez is second in command at Sacramento-based Asian Resources Inc. (ARI), a non-profit community services organization. Nguyen is the executive director of ARI and Bermudez's long-time organizational superior, and there have not been any indications yet if Nguyen will support Bermudez. 

The candidates for the District 2 open seat are Cosumnes Community Services District Director Rod Brewer, Michelle Kile, and Felipe Martin. Mayor Singh-Allen is challenged by Brian Pastor, a 2020 Elk Grove mayoral candidate.
