Local Elected Official

Mayor Heather Fargo
Heather Fargo is a walking encyclopedia of local government, a body of knowledge gained during two terms as Sacramento’s mayor and as a city councilwoman representing District 1 prior to that. She’s currently facing the biggest challenge of her career: running against St. HOPE founder and former NBA star Kevin Johnson for a third term as mayor. Fargo, chair of the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency, champion of strong neighborhoods and equal rights for gay people, presided over the city during a period of dramatic growth. Her vision, according to her campaign website, is that “Sacramento will be the most livable city in America.”
