Latest election results indicate that Folsom City Councilwoman and restaurant owner Rosario Rodriguez extended her lead enough to ensure she would secure an outright win without requiring a runoff in the race to replace retiring Supervisor Sue Frost. It will be the first time a non-incumbent has won in the primary since Roger Niello won his race to replace Supervisor Dave Cox in the June Primary almost a quarter-century ago.

Rodriguez has 51% of the vote and, if she maintains that lead, she will win the seat and avoid a November runoff.

Folsom City Councilwoman Rosario Rodriguez was still in the lead in the three-way race for a seat on the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors as more returns were released Tuesday afternoon, one week after primary Election Day. Rodriguez has 51% of the vote and, if she maintains that lead, she will win the seat and avoid a November runoff.

The outgoing supervisor, Sue Frost, said in July that she would not run for reelection for the 4th Supervisorial District. The boomerang-shaped district includes parts or all of Citrus Heights, Folsom, Orangevale, Antelope, Rio Linda, Elverta, Gold River, Rancho Murieta, North Highlands, Carmichael, Foothill Farms and Fair Oaks.

Rodriguez, a conservative, was endorsed by Frost when the supervisor announced that she would step down from her seat. Rodriguez ran against political newcomer and registered Democrat Braden Murphy and the conservative Citrus Heights Mayor Bret Daniels. Daniels had 27% of the vote when the county released a new round of results Tuesday, while Murphy had 22%.

Updated counts now show Rodriguez ahead of Citrus Heights Mayor Bret Daniels and fellow Folsom resident Braden Murphy. In this race, the top two vote earners will face off in November unless a candidate takes 50% of the vote “plus one” in the primary.

Rodriguez moved to the 50.54% mark, with an updated vote count of 17,828. Daniels now sits at 27.84% with 9,823 votes being reported. Murphy has garnered 7,631 votes so far, putting him at the 21.63% mark in the race. As of Friday afternoon, Sacramento County elections overall were reporting voter turnout at 20.78%, with 180,496 ballots counted so far in a county that has 868,750 registered voters to date.

Sacrament Bee: Rodriguez is the best placed of all candidates to provide intelligent counsel and help residents through tight times.

The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors will have a new representative next year with the retirement of District 4’s Sue Frost. While this editorial board had more than its share of disagreements with Frost, we find ourselves in agreement with her pick to replace her on the board.
Rosario Rodriguez is currently serving as a council member of the Folsom City Council, and recently completed a term as mayor. Of the three candidates for the District 4 seat, Rodriguez stood out as the most prepared and knowledgeable applicant about the district and the many obstacles the county can expect to face in the next four years.

Mayor works to connect with the community one resident at a time


Since stepping into her role as mayor of Folsom, Rosario Rodriguez has used her weekly office hours to help the community one resident at a time.

Last week, Rodriguez experienced the fruits of her work while meeting with a community member at a bus stop.

In early February, local resident Charles Bellairs visited the mayor’s office hours concerned because Sacramento Regional Transit District (RT) removed a bus stop in front of the Sutter Health building on East Bidwell. That left him walking half a mile to get to the doctor’s office, which would prove difficult in extreme heat or rain.

Rodriguez said she escalated his concern to City Manager Elaine Andersen, who then contacted Henry Li, RT general manager and CEO. Two days later, RT replaced the bus stop at 2575 East Bidwell.

Bellairs contacted Rodriguez last week to tell her he was using the bus stop, so she met up with him at the stop.

“We hear so much about what goes wrong with government and rarely hear about the things that work out well,” Rodriguez said.

Connecting residents with the right officials and listening to residents speak about their concerns has been ongoing work for Rodriguez twice a week since January.

Mayor Rodriguez cites bold vision for 2023


Shining with community pride in a vivid red dress on the stage of Lakeside Church, Folsom Mayor Rosario Rodriguez delivered the 2023 State of the City address to a capacity- filled auditorium last Thursday. The event marked the first address for Rodriguez; the local businesswoman was named mayor in December after previously serving as vice- mayor.

“I truly enjoyed delivering the State of the City. It was so awesome looking out at the audience and seeing so many familiar faces that I’ve interacted with over the past 15 years,” said Rodriguez. “We have such a wonderful city and I’m excited to serve as mayor.”

At 4,937 words in total, Rodriguez’ speech focused on getting to work and getting things done in the year to come,

Rodriguez focused on the success of the year gone by as well as the bold vision ahead, all while recalling a special time after she opened her business, Sutter Street Taqueria, and learned what the Folsom community was truly all about.“I had taken a leap of faith and traded my six-figure healthcare job to pursue my dream of owning a taqueria in Historic Folsom,” said Rodriguez.

“As a new small-business owner, I worked dual jobs for a few months until the demand was too great. I was working around the clock 24-7, while also caring for my now late husband, Paul, during his aggressive chemotherapy treatments. It became clear to those closest to me that I was in high gear for a prolonged period.”
