Yesterday Sacramento County Board of Supervisors District 5 candidate Jaclyn Moreno kicked off the fall campaign in the presence of a boisterous group of supporters and volunteers at the Teamster Local 150 hall in Sacramento.

Moreno, a Democratic candidate, is facing Republican Elk Grove City Councilmember Pat Hume to replace Don Nottoli, who decided against seeking re-election after serving on the board for 28 years. Both parties have placed a high priority on this race which could determine the balance of power on the Board of Supervisors.  

Framing the event with the Labor Day weekend, the traditional fall campaign kick-off, Sacramento City Councilmember Eric Guerra noted labor unions support Moreno. 

"This is Labor Day weekend, and there is no other way to make sure we are supporting labor by making sure we elect labor candidates," Guerra told the audience. 

Others speaking on behalf of Moreno were Sacramento County Democratic Party chair Traci Stafford, Sacramento City Councilmember Mai Vang, and Ivory Watts, political coordinator for Service Employees Union Local 2015, representing care providers.

During her presentation, Moreno noted their campaign polling revealed District 5 voters' values closely with her policy positions.  

"We have the polling data to prove that," Moreno said. "Recent poll we did, shows the voters of district five are better aligned with us."

Moreno noted the poll said voters want a pro-choice candidate and to address homelessness with compassion. Hume has not stated his position on women's reproductive rights and has criticized the housing first approach to addressing homelessness. 

She also noted, "they want to see a candidate that prioritizes workers." 

On several occasions during the rally, members of the audience chanted, "when we fight, we win." 

"That's why we are endorsed by labor groups; that's why we are endorsed by Planned Parenthood," Moreno said. "And that is why we are going to win this race. "
