About Pat Hume
Pat Hume has spent his life building on a legacy of service to community.
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 was killed 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.
Pat learned about service from an early age.
His father served in the US Military, his 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’s family has been active in the Chamber of Commerce, Soroptimist, 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.

As a Councilman, Pat has has focused on real-world accomplishments, ranging from "small things" like repairing the sound wall on East Stockton Blvd along highway 99 that was an eye sore and extending the 35 mph zone through Sheldon to slow traffic down to larger issues like the Southeast Connector, building the Aquatic Center, a new animal control center, and the community/civic center.
