Each year, Capitol Weekly’s Top 100 names the most powerful movers and shakers in California politics. We don’t include elected officials. Instead, we look at those who devote their professional lives to fighting for – or against – issues of state politics and policy, including lobbyists, bureaucrats, activists, trade group leaders, Capitol staffers and even journalists.

Due to the COVID surge that Sacramento is currently experiencing, we have chosen to convert the Top 100 Party on August 25 into a Virtual Event. 

We look forward to having you join us for the virtual event. Come help us celebrate the Top 100!  Don’t miss this very special night – see you on August 25!
