Mayor Jim Ruane will be receiving an award from the Peninsula Coalition in May for his leadership during the city's recovery from the 2010 PG&E pipeline explosion, the organization recently announced.
The coalition—a group of business, labor and community leaders—will be holding its eighth annual Community Honors Dinner on May 10 at the Westin Millbrae. Ruane and Rebuilding Together Peninsula, which builds volunteer partnerships to rehabilitate homes and community facilities for low-income residents, will be the two honorees.
"Mr. Ruane and the San Bruno official family have done truly heroic work in starting the long healing process resulting from the massive explosion and fire that struck their city in September of 2010," the Peninsula Coalition said in announcing the awards dinner.
