My Top 3 Priorities

  • Clean up/out homeless encampments, and reduce homelessness by focusing on enforcement and treatment. That is why leader fighting to reduce homelessnes are supporting me.
  • Crack down on criminals who are preying on our community. That is why every law enforcement group in the region has endorsed me.
  • Help small businesses recover so we can prosper and create jobs. That is why every Chamber of Commerce in the district is supporting me.



Profession:City Councilmember/Small Businessman.
City Council, Elk Grove — Elected position (2008–current)


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 AirForce and was killed 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’s 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 

Real Solutions. 

As a Councilman, Pat has has focused on real-world solutions, 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.

Pat is running for Supervisor to stand up for victims and ensure safety for our families, get our economy running again, bring a new approach to solving the homeless crises, and fix local roads to reduce traffic jams and potholes.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I've always been more focused on solving problems that affect people in their everyday lives rathe than playing at politics.  I have no aspiration to or interest in higher office like Congress or the state legislature.  My experience and interest is with local office.  That's why I have spent the last 15 solving real problems - and why I have earned the support of the overwhelming majority of local elected leaders in the district - including all of my colleagues on the Elk Grove City Council, every member of the Galt City Council, three members of the Rancho Cordova city council, District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert, and a half-dozen school board members.

Due to my focus on issues rather than politics, most of the leaders working to solve those problems are supporting me as well - including Sacramento County Probation Association, Deputy Sheriffs, Police Officers, business advocates, Chambers of Commerce, and some of the thought-leaders working to solve the homeless crisis.
