71. Scott Wetch
We always think of Scott Wetch of Carter Wetch Associates as a labor guy, now and forever, but he has corporate interests, too — Verizon, Lyft and the Los Angeles Turf Club, among others. He’s an aggressive – very aggressive — advocate for labor, including the State Pipe Trades Council, and he served as political and legislative director for the powerful Building and Construction Trades Council, which has its headquarters in the same building as Carter Wetch at 13th and I. When Rep. Mike Thompson was in the Legislature, Wetch served as his legislative director, and he also served as chief of staff to former Lawmaker Jack Scott, a Pasadena Democrat.
