Current summary of nomination papers for Elk Grove City Council, Mayoral races; Is a proxy war brewing?

Elk Grove City Council District 4 candidate Sergio Robles prominently features endorsements from Mayor Bobbie Singh-Allen and Councilmember Stephanie Nguyen. Will Nguyen keep supporting Robles? |  

With the Friday, August 12 deadline passed, a summary of the validated nomination papers is below.

Elk Grove City Council District 2 - Three candidates - Rod Brewer, Michelle Kile, and Felipe Martin - have all submitted nomination papers that have been validated. All three candidates will appear on the November ballot.  

Elk Grove City Council District 4 - Three candidates - Giezi Bermudez, Thong Phan-Quang, and Sergio Robles - drew nomination papers.

Robles has submitted paperwork and will appear on the November ballot. 

Phan-Quang has decided not to pursue candidacy.

Bermudez drew papers, submitted his paperwork, and was administered his candidacy oath by the Elk Grove City Clerk's office. However, his profile on the city clerk's webpage has been updated, indicating his paperwork has not been validated. 

Elk Grove Mayoral Race - Two candidates drew nomination papers - Mayor Bobbie Singh-Allen and Brian Pastor. Singh-Allen's paperwork is validated, and she will appear on the November ballot.

Pastor drew his initial nomination papers on July 17, but as of Friday, his status on the city clerk's office webpage was not updated.

Should Pastor, who ran for Mayor in 2020, decide against a candidacy, Singh-Allen will be unopposed. 

The most interesting recent development in Elk Grove City Council races has been Bermudez's District 4 entry. Bermudez is the second in command at Asian Resources Inc. (ARI), a Sacramento-based non-profit community services organization.

ARI's executive director is Elk Grove District 4 City Councilmember Stephanie Nguyen, who is running for the California Assembly this November. Robles has prominently featured endorsements by Nguyen and Singh-Allen on his campaign website. 

It will be noteworthy to see if Nguyen switches her endorsement and throws her support to her co-worker Bermudez. If so, a proxy war could develop between Nguyen and Singh-Allen.
