It's not that Kathy Narum served the residents of Pleasanton in appointed and elected positions for more than 20 years. It's not the long list of council, local, regional committees and task forces she was involved with over the years. It's not even the impressive number of accomplishments the city made during her tenure.It's how Kathy performed her duties over those years -- as a servant leader who puts the needs and wellbeing of others before her own.Over the years, I have watched Kathy interact with fellow councilmembers, residents, city staff and other elected officials, and I saw a leader who approached her role as an opportunity to serve others as opposed to a chance to fulfill a personal agenda.
