Izzy Delancey, 2020-2021 Honorary Mayor of Carmichael
Izzy has been a resident of Carmichael since 1960. She comes from a large family of 9 nine children.
Carmichael offered much for her active family and still does today. There were more horses riding down California Ave then bicycles back in the day. Izzy often saddled up the family's one horse and rode to Ancil Hoffman Park where she met other friends and they would trot and gallop along the 3 mile walking path. During the summer, floating down the American River from the Fair Oaks Bridge to Ancil Hoffman park was a huge past time for her family and friends. Carmichael Library was the resource for their homework, the only difference, there was no Google or Alexa search engines, we used World Book and Britannica encyclopedias as our search engines. The Carmichael Library is a great source for the community and is still a part of my life for my own grandchildren.
Izzy went to school locally, attending Our Lady of Assumption, La Sierra High School and American River College.
Many thanks to the Carmichael Parks & Recreation for offering girls fast pitch softball. Our family filled the baseballs fields many a Saturday and it still continues today.
Golfing is a hobby of Izzy’s and no place better than Ancil Hoffman Golf Course. Effie Yeaw is another past time for Izzy and her grandchildren. Izzy loves Sushi and can be found every Tuesday at Silver Sake Restaurant. Besides golfing and sushi, Izzy loves spending time with her family. Izzy is also very involved with the Sacramento Association of Realtor's as Committee Chair of Regional meetings.
In 1979, Izzy moved to Texas and was employed with Braniff Airlines and began flying around the US. In 1993, Izzy owned a company called Hair Products of Texas, a hair care distribution company .She had a staff of 120 employees and had the rights to two states; New Mexico and Texas. Izzy remained in Texas 20 years, then in 1999 decided to move back home to Carmichael. Izzy is a Realtor at Trillium Real Estate, following a passion to help families and friends with home buying dreams, assisting in the transition of selling homes in some cases for the final move to assisted living.
Izzy has been married to her husband Jeff since 2016. Together they have 5 grandchildren she loves spending time with.
When Izzy decided to run for 2020 Honorary Mayor, she couldn't think of a more honorable thing to do, then to give back to a community that gave her so much as a child.
Izzy has selected the H2LOC (How to Love Our Cops) non-profit organization. Sometimes it seems the entire world is against police officers and by extension their families. Saturation of a mad, bad and sad career culture is overwhelming. Injury, death, and the emotional toll become a reality in their lives. H2LOC aims to be positive in the midst of trouble. The H2LOC is about learning, keeping up with the latest research and listening to the hearts and thoughts of the law enforcement families across the US, Canada and beyond.
