Wanna Give Mayor Fargo a Run for Her Money?

Rumors abound that Kevin Johnson will throw his hat into the ring for Sactown’s mayoral race.

Here’s information on the June 3 primary municipal election — should anyone else be interested!

For the purpose of electing the Mayor of Sacramento and Sacramento City Council Members in Council Districts 2, 4, 6 and 8 for terms expiring Nov. 25.

A candidate must be an elector and a resident within the district the candidate seeks to represent for not less than 30 days preceding the date of filing candidate papers (no later than 2/6/08). The candidate’s qualifications will be verified through Sacramento County voter registration files prior to the issuance of a nomination package. Elector and resident status must be maintained during the term of office.

The nomination period commences Feb. 11 and ends on March 7. The Sacramento City Clerk will issue and accept for filing official nomination documents during regular business hours.

In order to be successful in the June 3, 2008 Primary Election, one candidate must receive a majority of votes cast in that candidate’s particular district. If one candidate does not win a majority (50% plus 1) of the votes cast, the top two vote receivers will be placed on the Nov. 4 ballot for a run off.

Candidates winning in June will not be sworn in until Nov. 25 when the terms of the Mayor and Districts 2, 4, 6 and 8 expire.
