About the Speakers:

Excerpts and Information from the Official PatHume.com website:

Pat grew up in Elk Grove and attended Kerr Middle School and Jesuit High School before receiving his BA from San Diego State University. After college, Pat moved back home to Sacramento County to help the family business following his grandfather’s death in 1998.

A native Californian, Pat was born on George Air Force Base in Adelanto, CA. His family lived in Salisbury, England and Fort Walton Beach, Florida until his father, Col. Harlan B. Hume died during active duty in September of 1977.  After the Col.’s death, Pat’s family returned to Elk Grove, where his mother’s side of the family had lived since 1946.

His father served in the US AirForce and died in the line of duty when Pat was still in school.  Pat’s grandfather Harry Hume was city manager in Chico from 1930-1950 and his mother’s family has had a strong presence in Sacramento County for over half a century.  Pat is dedicated to veterans and has been a driving force behind the City’s Veteran and Public Safety Street Naming Program.

Pat models his sense of character and integrity on his grandfather Jim Guttridge, who served on the EGUSD school board for over two decades and was a charter member of the Rotary Club of Elk Grove. Decades later, Pat would go on to serve as President of the same club.

Pat and his wife Lisa are active in the community, including the Chamber of Commerce, Soroptimists, Project RIDE, Strauss Festival, EGACT, EGPAC and the Elk Grove Regional Scholarship Foundation – where Pat now serves as President. Pat chaired the extremely successful Spotlight Elk Grove and serves as a pro-bono auctioneer for groups like the Food Bank, Chicks in Crisis, and the Teen Center.

Local Commitment. Regional Leadership.
Pat served on the City of Elk Grove Planning Commission from incorporation until he was elected to the City Council in 2006.  He has been overwhelmingly re-elected four times.  His work on regional boards, including Regional Transit, Capital Southeast Connector Joint Powers Authority and LAFCO (Local Agency Formation Commission) has earned Hume the reputation as one of the area’s leading voices on transit and development.
