No. 59: Capitol Weekly’s Top 100

59. Joe Lang

Joe Lang is a perennial presence in Sacramento, and his lobbying firm, Lang, Hansen, Giroux & Associates (formerly Lang Hansen O’Malley and Miller), is well known indeed and familiar to those entering the Senator Building across from the Capitol. As is customary among the major lobbying firms, LHG&A boasts a major client list. Those include such companies as FedEx, Estee Lauder, the California Business Roundtable, the California Retailers Association, the Port of San Diego, Wal-Mart, DraftKings, etc., etc. We’ve said this before, but it’s true: The firm has people who should be on this list and, guess what? This time one of them is: see Bob Giroux at No. 97. Along with Lang and Giroux are Bev Hansen – she’s been on the list before – and Awet Kidane, who registered in January.
