Darrel SteinbergYears of service as an accounting professor at Skyline College is just one of the things Marv Steinberg has to be proud of this year – here’s the other: Marv’s son, Darrell Steinberg was elected as the Mayor of Sacramento.

The younger Steinberg was elected in a landslide back in June 2016 with 59 percent of the vote, allowing him to avoid a November runoff against his opponent, Councilwoman Angelique Ashby. After a wait of 189 days, Steinberg was sworn in as Mayor on December 13, 2016.

I’m proud of my son, not only because of what he’s done, but because he really cares,” said Marv.

Amongst a variety of pledges to the city, Mayor Steinberg has said that he would use Sacramento’s status as a sanctuary city to fight against federal deportations if the Trump administration moves forward on campaign promises to increase enforcement.
