82. Andrew Antwih

Andrew Antwih spent nearly 13 years as a legislative staffer, nearly half that time as chief consultant to the Assembly Transportation Committee, and it was from that period that his reputation as a top transportation expert grew in the Capitol. Not surprisingly, his firm – Shaw Yoder Antwih Schmelzer and Lange – has an array of clients that include transit districts, counties (including Sacramento), transportation authorities, regional rail authorities, and the like. Transportation is a lot more than cars; It involves infrastructure, carbon emissions, construction, routing, environmental controls and politics – definitely politics. A South Los Angeles native, Andrew began his career in the Legislature in 1994 as a Senate Fellow, shortly after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Government from Pomona College.
