Capitol Weekly’s Top 100: Fiona Hutton

56. Fiona Hutton

A lot happens in Sacramento, behind the scenes and publicly, but Fiona Hutton consistently manages to navigate the political maze and figure out what’s going on. Hutton’s nonpartisan public affairs firm, Fiona Hutton and Associates, has an eclectic client list built up over the past two decades; FHA’s raft of top clients have included Sutter Health, State Water Contractors, California State Parks Foundation, Health Net, Los Angeles Department of Water & Power, CalCannabis and Comcast among others. FHA, with offices in L.A. and Sacramento, has been involved in some of the most closely watched issues at the State Capitol, such as the pandemic, health access and equity, energy/grid reliance, drought/climate, sustainability, and infrastructure. The firm handles everything from reputation management to issue advocacy to legislative drills and regulatory challenges. She currently serves on the boards of directors for the California Chamber of Commerce, Ojai Valley Land Conservancy and, full disclosure, on the board of Open California, the nonprofit, nonpartisan publisher of Capitol Weekly. Hutton received her B.A. in political science from San Diego State University.
