Sacramento City Council cancels special meeting about Sean Loloee's residency

The meeting was canceled as a result of Loloee agreeing to work with the city attorney to investigate his residency.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento city leaders have canceled a special council meeting they had planned for Friday afternoon about Councilmember Sean Loloee's residency.

Questions about Loloee's residency come after a Sacramento Bee report said it appeared Councilmember Loloee was sworn in to represent Del Paso Heights on the Sacramento City Council at his wife's $1.4 million Granite Bay home, rather than a house on Nogales Street in the Hagginwood neighborhood.

Following the report, Mayor Darrell Steinberg released a statement on June 22 asking Councilmember Lololee to provide him, the city manager, and the city attorney with a report clarifying the facts of his residency.

"Under our Council rules, all members agree to put our constituents first at all times and to hold each other accountable," wrote Mayor Steinberg. "So, as the mayor, I have asked, and Councilmember Loloee has agreed, to provide me, the city manager, and the city attorney with a report clarifying the facts of his residency, including the chronology of where he has resided since being sworn in."

Mayor Steinberg had called for a special city council meeting on Friday at 4 p.m. where the city council would discuss if they want the city attorney to launch an investigation into Loloee's residency, but the meeting was canceled Friday afternoon.

The meeting was canceled as a result of Loloee agreeing to work with the city attorney's investigation into his residency.

“In a news conference today, Councilmember Sean Loloee publicly stated his willingness to work with the City Attorney’s Office and cooperate with an independent investigation to resolve questions about his residency," Sacramento City Attorney Susana Alcala Wood wrote in a statement. "As set forth in the Mayor’s letter, his agreement negates the need for the City Council to hold a special meeting on this."

The City Attorney's Office says they will share the results of the independent review once the investigation is completed.

Loloee held a press conference Friday morning where he issued remarks prior to the called council meeting. He said he's allowing a family friend to live as a guest in his Hagginwood home.

"I have allowed a close friend of mine of 16 years and his family to stay with me as my guest because I have fallen on hard times due to COVID," Loloee said. "I shared this information with the mayor when I first invited the mayor into my home."

Loloee said the mayor has seen every inch of his home and the opportunity to do so is available to every councilmember.
