58.  Kevin Sloat

Kevin Sloat is a familiar figure in the Capitol community and has been for decades – even though he keeps a relatively low profile. He developed his political chops during Gov. Pete Wilson’s administration when he was   legislative secretary and a top aide to the governor. He’s used his experience and contacts to build a formidable lobbying operation. His client roster includes such major players as Anthem Blue Cross, BMW, California State University, Chevron, the state Chamber of Commerce, PG&E and the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, among dozens of others. Sloat, known in the Capitol for his expertise on the state budget, also served as a chief of staff in the Legislature and knows the Capitol up and down. He founded his firm in 1997.
