Carmichael honorary mayoral candidates swung into campaign season with teenage jazz musicians during a Carmichael Chamber of Commerce fundraiser.

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - Carmichael’s annual race for honorary mayor has three candidates with hats in the ring for the 2019 volunteer office.

Realtor and incumbent Mayor Kelli Foley founded Trillium Real Estate on Marconi Avenue. Part of Foley’s fundraising will support the Carmichael Park Foundation.

Jamila Buada owns Arthur Murray Dance Center in Carmichael. The teacher will donate part of her campaign funds to the Alzheimers Association.

Kristen Garl is General Manager of Sacramento Express Employment Professionals office in the North Area. Her chosen nonprofit is the Playmakers, an organization that supports disadvantaged San Juan School District students.

The candidates recently joined forces at “Mayoral Mingle.” Oakmont of Carmichael hosted the Carmichael Chamber of Commerce fundraiser. Blueprint Jazz – a quartet of teenage virtuosos from local high schools – provided jazz. Learn more about the annual mayoral race at www.carmichaelchamber.com.
