Moreno issues statement, concedes to Hume in hard-fought Sacramento County Board of Supervisors District 5 race

With today's vote tallies from Sacramento County Voter Registration and Elections, Jaclyn Moreno has conceded to Pat Hume. With less than 2,000 uncounted votes countywide, Hume beat Moreno 46,378 votes to 46,050 for the District 5 seat on the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors.

Moreno said she contacted Hume this afternoon to congratulate him and offer her concession. 

Moreno said in her statement to supporters, "I know this outcome isn't what we all had hoped for, but I want to reiterate just how amazing this campaign has been. With a united vision of a better Sacramento County, we fought for our shared values of climate, social, economic, and reproductive justice." 

Moreno had served one four-year term on the Cosumnes Community Services District Board of Directors, and Hume was a four-term Elk Grove City Council member. When Hume leaves the city council in the coming days, he will have been the longest-serving council member in Elk Grove's 22-year history. 

Hume will replace Don Nottoli, who served as the District 5 representative on the Sacramento Board of Supervisors for 28 years. Nottoli has not announced any political plans following his departure from the Board of Supervisors. 

As of this posting, Hume has not issued a statement.

Congrats Hume! I hope your lack of wisdom, inaction, and visionless practices are left behind in Elk Grove and do not follow you to Sacramento County. Looking forward to you keeping your pledge to solve the homeless problem.

Pat Hume certainly didn't win by much. Did he get the memo?

However, let's hope the very vocal, tuned-in Sacramento County activists, who keep a close eye on the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors, keep Hume's article in the Elk Grove Citizen on hand and hold him to his own words.

Unfortunately, those who pay close attention in Elk Grove know better.

From the point forward, perhaps Mr. Hume should be called "Landslide Lyndon".
