Keith Land has been a volunteer firefighter for Lodi. He has been mayor, a councilman, a commissioner for Parks and Rec, a board member for the American Red Cross and a volunteer for the Boys and Girls Club; he's the current chairman for the LOEL Foundation, and now Land can add Outstanding Citizen of the Year to his long list of community accomplishments.

Friends, members of the Lodi Chamber of Commerce, the press and past honorees were waiting to tell Land that he was chosen as 2009's Citizen of the Year.
