Experienced. Proven leader. Driven to serve our community.

I’m Nate Pelczar, and just like you, I can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather live than in Sacramento, especially in District One!  As a homeowner in Natomas since 2010, I'm proud to be a leader in our community and foster its continued growth and success.  Even more so, I'm proud and honored to have been asked to run for City Council with the full endorsement of Vice Mayor Angelique Ashby.

I've been serving Natomas and greater Sacramento for years and I'm thrilled about the opportunity to serve in this new and exciting way, one that allows me to leverage my skills, abilities, and experience to see District One grow and thrive.


I humbly ask for your support and vote as I campaign to be your next councilmember.  It will be an honor to serve you. I plan to focus on growing jobs, increasing our housing supply, and continuing the community programs started over the last 12 years.  There is still much work to be done as our district grows and builds on the relationships that have made District One so special.  With your support, I'd be honored to do it as your next District One City Councilmember.


Sacramento Vice Mayor Angelique Ashby

"I am proud to give Nate my endorsement.  He is humble, measured, and well-prepared to lead our community.


We've worked hard to build things like the certified farmers market, an aquatics facility and a robust youth action corp.  Nate is the candidate who will have the support to keep these programs going, to continue my legacy, and to ensure we continue building on what we've already accomplished.


He is also best suited to see that the new hospital is built to completion and to work with the District 3 representative to unite Natomas.


I'm urging you to vote for Nate Pelczar to serve District 1 on the Sacramento City Council."

- Sacramento Vice Mayor Angelique Ashby


Meet Nate

Connected to District One.  

  • A proud homeowner in the district since 2010, I’ve spent years getting to know our hard working residents, neighborhoods, business owners, and what makes this district the best part about Sacramento. 

  • As an active volunteer and boardmember in Natomas and greater Sacramento on a number of community-oriented nonprofit organizations, and also as an appointed member and chair of the Natomas Unified School District's Citizens Bond Oversight Committee from 2014-2019, I have the experience, skills, and relationships needed to get things done. I'm proud to be a leader in Natomas and greater Sacramento and now I'm ready to represent District One as the next city council member.

  • As a mentee to Vice Mayor Ashby and as an advisor to a number of elected officials in Natomas and greater Sacramento, I’ve helped our government institutions better protect those in our community that can't protect themselves from bullying and violence; this has made our community safer and stronger.


I'm a numbers guy with heart. 

  • As a management consultant for much of the last 15 years, I’ve provided strategic advising, auditing, and regulatory services to governmental and private organizations, large and small.  These skills are needed on our city council, and I'll add value to the council by providing these skills.

  • I’ll use my years of financial, project management, and budget advisory experience to make sure that I'm a good steward of our tax dollars, that we invest our money in ways that improve our community, and that the interests of District One residents and businesses are represented well - and with heart - at city hall. 


We all win together. 

  • I've got what it takes to serve you well.  As someone who currently helps run a environmental nonprofit focused on local and statewide advocacy and education, I've got the skills, experience, and relationships to not just lead the district, but also to best serve the needs of District One residents, businesses, and community organizations.  Your interests guide me and our shared success is my goal.

I'm in it for the long haul.  

  • I will hit the ground running on day one as your next councilmember. You can count on me to use all my talents and abilities to represent District One well. I have expertise in the world of finance and how government works. I understand how to advocate for neighborhoods and communities. I'm a partner you can count on, and you can count on me for the long haul.

The Issues

I've spent countless hours talking with residents, business owners, and community leaders about their District 1 top concerns. Based on these conversations, these are my three main priorities, as they reflect the areas of greatest need in our community.

Building Housing & Helping the Unhoused

District One is fortunate to have a housing stock that continues to grow and benefit the greater Sacramento community in many ways.  I support the additional development of all types of high quality housing (single-family homes, apartment buildings, duplexes, etc.), especially transit-oriented planned communities.


Regarding the unhoused, I support a citywide approach to the development of solutions that include wrap-around services, such as the hotel conversion project that is currently under construction in Natomas to house women and children that are victims of domestic abuse. Let's help the unhoused get back on track, be self sufficient, and again contribute to the success of our community.

Safety & Security in District One

There’s a lot more we can do to make our our community safer. I'll work with Natomas residents, police leadership, and city staff to ensure that District One has the patrol coverage needed to increase safety and security for our residents, businesses, and visitors. 


I support the police and their efforts to improve communications between the citizens of District One, neighborhood watch organizations, and our businesses.  Improving the various connections between the police and District One stakeholders will help improve security and safety in the district and help improve our overall quality of life.

Continuing Vice Mayor Ashby's Legacy

We've seen tremendous economic and housing growth in the District on Vice Mayor Ashby's watch.  Everyone loves the Natomas Farmers Market, the Santa Parade, and Movies in the Park. The best parts about living in District One are not only the great jobs, the great housing options, but also the amazing programs developed and staffed by the incredible District One staff and an army of volunteers.  These components all make our community stronger, bring us together, and make living in District One simply amazing!


I pledge to continue the economic and housing growth in the district, providing high quality city services to residents, and ensuring that these programs continue with a seamless transition once I'm elected as your next councilmember.
