When I ran for City Council three years ago, I was determined to ensure that neighborhood concerns would drive my decisions as a Councilmember. I was motivated then by the vision that voters articulated for a safe and welcoming community. Now as your District 7 Councilmember, those are still my goals.
As a candidate I promised to focus on keeping us safe, creating jobs, and bringing in new resources to fix our levee, parks, and streets, as well as address long standing issues like the condition of the Pocket canal and opening up the Sacramento River Parkway Trail.
Together we have made progress in addressing issues that are important to us. I am asking for your support in my re-election to represent you on the Sacramento City Council.
Serving you on the City Council – working closest to the people – is what I want to do. Thank you for your consideration. Together we can make a difference.

“The men and women of the Sacramento Police Officers Association (SPOA) proudly endorse Rick Jennings for re-election to the Sacramento City Council. Rick works with our officers every day to make sure his community is the safest in the City. He works with the community to build communication between the officers and the community they serve. By working with and through our neighbors, the men and women of the SPD are more effective and focused on the issues that the community wants addressed. Sacramento and the 7th District are fortunate to have a leader like Rick representing them.”Tim Davis
“Rick built the political support necessary in the City Council to fund planning and permitting for an almost-two-mile extension of the Parkway upriver from Garcia Bend Park even as the city was just emerging from the budget constraints of the Great Recession. … since then, he also championed a $2.3 million appropriation for buying the easements necessary to bring down private fences and gates on the levee in the Pocket and give the public access we desperately need for recreation and a safe off-road bicycle route to downtown. Rick has stood with Parkway supporters, calmly and patiently explaining to opponents why the Parkway’s completion is essential to the city and the region. We ask voters to thank Rick by retaining him and ensuring that we keep this stalwart Parkway supporter on the council.”Friends of the Sacramento River Parkway
