Time running out for Elk Grove Mayor, 2 council members and other staff member to disclose 2023 gifts

As state law requires, elected officials and public employees who make or influence policy must file their California Form 700 by the end of business today, April 2.

For Elk Grove officials, the California Form 700, also known as the statement of economic interest, is filed with the Elk Grove City Clerk. While most Elk Grove bureaucrats have dutifully filed their statements, there are some notable department heads who have yet to record their disclosures.  

Only two of the five city council members, District 1 and 3 representatives Darren Suen and Kevin Spease have filed their statements. Both council members also recently filed amendments. 

Those who have left their filing until the last day include Elk Grove Mayor Bobbie Singh-Allen and District 2 and 4 representatives Rod Brewer and Sergio Robles. For Brewer and Robles, the 2023 filing will mark the first complete year disclosure of gifts they received since assuming office in late 2022, underscoring the timeliness and significance of their filings. 

With the exception of public works director Jeff Werner, the city's top executives, including city manager Jason Behrmann, city attorney Jonathan Hobbs, city clerk Jason Lindgren, deputy city manager Kara Reddig, and innovations czar Christopher Jordan, have curtailed acceptance of gifts like dinners and golf outings. 

Here are links to Suen's first and second amendments, and Spease's amended filing
