Nguyen Secures First Place, Advances to November Runoff


ELK GROVE – Elk Grove City Councilwoman Stephanie Nguyen’s campaign for

State Assembly released the following statement in response to the Sacramento County

Registrar of Voters final Primary Election results:

 

“I am extremely excited that our campaign to build a Sacramento region for all was

successful in securing the top spot in the Primary Election. While we are happy at the

results, this race is far from over, but our campaign is strong and has the momentum and

support needed to win in November.


Special interest groups spent over $1 million dollars to defeat our campaign and to push

us out of the top two, but they failed, and we came in first place. They failed because

voters recognize that I’ve spent my entire life uplifting our community. As the

Executive Director of Asian Resources, I’ve worked to ensure that all communities,

especially low-income and immigrant families have access to support services. As an

Elk Grove City Councilmember, I’ve prioritized combatting homelessness and crime;

successfully securing $5 million in funding for homelessness and providing renter

assistance to families to keep people in their homes.


My service to our community is why our campaign has amassed an enormous amount

of community-based support and is why we will be successful at building a Sacramento

region for all.”
