Sentinel staff report–
Sue Frost, who has represented Citrus Heights and surrounding areas on the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors for seven years, said in an email update to constituents on Tuesday that she will not be seeking reelection next year.

“[T]he time has come for me to move on, so I will not be seeking reelection in 2024,” Frost said in her July 25 email.

The message expressed gratitude for the trust and support Frost said she’s received during her years in public service. She served as a Citrus Heights City Council member for four years, prior to replacing Roberta MacGlashan when she retired from the Board of Supervisors in 2016.

Frost, 67, acknowledged challenges during her tenure, from protests to economic recession and the COVID-19 pandemic, when she questioned mask mandates and expressed skepticism for some pandemic-related policies. Most recently, she was the only supervisor to vote against a personal pay raise for the five-member Board of Supervisors. Frost said during her term in office she has “fought hard to stand up for our Constitutional Rights, defend taxpayers, improve transportation, stand up for families, create more opportunities, and keep our neighborhoods safe.”

The outgoing supervisor said she has endorsed Folsom City Councilwoman Rosario Rodriquez as the right candidate to succeed her on the Board of Supervisors, calling Rodriquez “an effective councilwoman, small business owner, widow, mother and grandmother, and a tireless leader who has earned my support.” Frost said she gave consideration to several other leaders in the district, seeking to have a successor who would be “a strong voice for public safety, fiscal responsibility, economic opportunity, and individual rights.”

Frost has represented District 4 on the Board of Supervisors since being elected in 2016. The district covers the northern and eastern outskirts of Sacramento County, including Rio Linda, Citrus Heights, Orangevale, Folsom, and Rancho Murrieta.
