Citrus Heights mayor to run for Sacramento County supervisor

Citrus Heights Mayor Sue Frost this week became the first candidate to announce she will run next year to replace Sacramento County Supervisor Roberta MacGlashan.

MacGlashan said last month she will not run for re-election once she finishes serving 12 years as the supervisor representing the conservative-leaning eastern part of the county. She also served as Citrus Heights mayor before moving to the Board of Supervisors.

Frost, 59, has worked as a nurse and has owned a business in the mortgage and real estate field for more than 30 years, according to the Citrus Heights website.

She announced her bid for supervisor in a press release Monday. She touted endorsements from the Sacramento Association of Realtors, as well as fiscal conservatives including John Kabateck, former executive director of the National Federation of Independent Business, and Ken Payne, former president of the Sacramento Taxpayers Association.

MacGlashan said she is stepping down next year, saying she has completed most of her objectives and is considering a run for state office.
