Democratic Elk Grove Mayor, Vice Mayor to walk precincts for Republican candidate in hotly contest partisan race

Pat Hume (left) will have Darren Suen, along with Bobbie Singh-Allen (not pictured) walk precincts this weekend. | 

Throwing aside party loyalty, two Democratic members of the Elk Grove City Council will actively campaign for a prominent Republican candidate.

Those Democratic officials, Elk Grove Mayor Bobbie Singh-Allen and Vice Mayor Darren Suen will be walking precincts for Republican Elk Grove City Councilmember Pat Hume, who is campaigning for the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors District 5. Hume is competing against Democratic Cosumnes Community Services District Director Jaclyn Moreno. 

According to Hume's posting on Facebook, aside from Singh-Allen and Suen, one person committed to the canvassing effort as of this posting. The group is meeting at 11 a.m. this Saturday at, interestingly, Don Nottoli Park. 

Along with Singh-Allen and Suen, there is one other Democratic Elk Grove City Councilmember, Stephanie Nguyen. Even though Nguyen is in a close race against fellow Democrat Sacramento City Councilmember Eric Guerra for the California Assembly District 10, neither Singh-Allen nor Suen have appeared to be supporting her candidacy in the same manner they have Republican Hume. 

Singh-Allen has contributed $1,300 to Republican Hume and nothing to Democratic Assembly candidate Nguyen.

Elk Grove Mayor and Council including District 5 County Board of Supervisor is a non partisan seat. Elk Grove, Galt and Rancho Cordova council, business community as well as citizens from all political parties is supporting Hume. It shows Hume is well rounded in working for the people he serves and not party politics. It seems his opponent and her supporters are concerned that party politics should be followed but that is not serving the people is it.

I laughed when I saw the above photo. The caption should read, "Do you REALLY want to vote for THIS guy?" Ask yourselves, is EG better off now since he took office six years ago? Is our quality of life better? I say emphatically NO! We need new blood on the dais. Hume represents the status quo and everything that is wrong with the city council. For the most part, he goes along to get along. He rarely dissents. He is not partisan, as Randy points out. But he certainly does not work and serve the people by any stretch. Like most in his position, he puts his own interests first.

On the other hand, I would say Moreno has done a good job with the resources she has at CSD. Fire and the city's parks and trails continue to be a point of pride for residents. Watching the Q&A between Hume and Moreno at the League of Women Voters, clearly shows that Moreno is the better candidate to represent our district.

Actually, Randy it means that the mayor and councilman Suen are "well-rounded in working for the people they serve and not party politics." This article doesn't show councilman Hume supporting anyone but himself.
Unfortunately for the mayor and Mr. Suen, their political futures past Elk Grove are being sealed by their support for a Trump Republican who doesn't believe in a woman's right to control her body, fair elections, that all people are created equal or in the support of the US Constitution and all democratic principles on which our country was founded.
- Good luck with that one Madame Mayor and councilman.
