Lobbyist Aaron Read is the definiton of “venerable” in Sacramento’s Capitol Community: he began his lobbying career advocating for California state employees while Reagan was governor and Willie Brown was still just the Assemblyman from the 13th District. Read formed Aaron Read and Associates in 1978 and has been a major force in Sacramento ever since. He has a bevy of clients, many of whom have been with him for decades. He joined John Howard and Tim Foster this week to talk about his long career, and about the issues he’s working as the legislative session heats up this month.
And, find out what he has in common with Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger!
