The Virtual TOP 100 Party

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.

Usually, we announce the Top 100 at an End-of-Session reception at the Sutter Club – live music, hors d’oeuvres, wine and beer – but, obviously, that wouldn’t work this year.

Instead, we held our first-ever Virtual Top 100 Party – a special online version of our annual bash.  Watch the video above for the big reveal – we’ve got a few surprises and some very special guests!

This year is the Twelfth Edition of Capitol Weekly’s Top 100 – We published the print edition of the annual Top 100 Book on August 11. For information on how to get your copy of the 2020 Top 100 Book, email or call 916 444 7665.
