Sacramento City Councilwoman elect, Bonnie Pannell, sits on the floor of her campaign headquarters as it is being dismantled following the previous night's election when she won a commanding percentage of the vote for the District 8 seat. She moved from her strip mall storefront office on Mack Road to City Hall, following the footsteps of her late husband, Councilman Sam Pannell, who died of heart failure in December, 1997.
