A 2013 winner, and a 2010 also-ran

Pat Rudebusch reacts to the Meg Whitman bobblehead she received as a prize during March 15's Orinda Citizen of the Year award dinner held at the Orinda Community Center. About 100 people honored Rudebusch, who left the Orinda school board in 2012 after serving three terms as a trustee. The award is sponsored by The Rotary Club of Orinda and by the Sun. Whitman, of course, was an unsuccessful candidate for governor in 2010.
