City Councilman Pat Hume to run for Supervisor

ELK GROVE - Elk Grove Councilman Pat Hume announced that he has begun organizing his campaign for Sacramento County Board of Supervisors in District 5.  Current Supervisor Don Nottoli will be retiring after almost three decades on the Board of Supervisors.

“Supervisor Nottoli has earned tremendous respect for how well he has represented this district,” said Hume. “I’ve worked beside him for over a decade, serving on regional board dealing with transportation, infrastructure and water issues - so I know the the issues and the commitment it takes to make a difference.”

The Fifth District includes the cities of Elk Grove, Galt, Isleton and Rancho Cordova, and the rural farming communities in the southern portion of Sacramento County and the Delta.

“We’re facing the same issues as we were a year ago,” said Hume, “coupled with the need to reopen schools and businesses to get our economy back on track to recover from the year-long shutdown.” 

“We can’t focus only on the pandemic and push all the other critical issues facing our communities on to the back burner.  We need action now,” said Hume.

"Homelessness is an epidemic and past efforts have failed, so we need a new solutions - and we must recognize the negative impact homeless camps have on our families, businesses, and communities.  We are facing other crises as well - a housing shortage, road blocks on transportation projects, a drought, and a rising crime rates,” Hume said.

Pat Hume has already earned the respect of many of his colleagues locally and regionally, including the endorsements of the mayors of the two largest cities in the District - Elk Grove Mayor Bobbie Singh-Allen and Rancho Cordova Mayor Garret Gatewood.

"I have been working alongside most of these leaders for a long time," Hume said. "They know they can trust me to be thoughtful, deliberate and transparent."

Hume’s nascent Finance Committee has been encouraging as well, cobbling together respected leaders such as Lux Taylor, Dave Lucchetti, Gerry Kamilos, Michelle Smira, Ardie Zahedani, and Katherine Bardis.

Hume’s longtime consultant Tab Berg, who has directed numerous campaigns in Sacramento County, Elk Grove and Rancho Cordova, will head up Hume’s campaign.  The campaign will be also be retaining long-time area consultant David Townsend on board to assist with messaging and outreach.

“I have a lot of faith in the team we are building,” said Hume. “We’re building to win, but also to focus on real issues and solutions that will make the county better, safer and more prosperous.”
