61. Amy Brown
Amy Brown, a partner in DiMare, Brown, Hicks and Kessler, represents the California Retired County Employees Association, and she publishes The Public Retirement Journal, an influential online newsletter. She travels the state constantly, conducting seminars on retirement issues and educating retirees – and others – about their options. So while she’s Sacramento-based, Brown also has something of a statewide profile – an unusual characteristic for a capital lobbyist. She’s also handled compensation insurance issues – she served on the Commission on Health, Safety and Workers Compensation – and she helped draft the major industry changes that former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law.
