A former top aide to Assembly leadership announced a list of blue-chip advocacy clients on Monday, becoming the latest ex-staff member to walk the well-worn path between the California Legislature and its lobbying corps.

Before launching his new lobbying and consulting shop, Greg Campbell served as chief of staff to Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, and her predecessor John A. Pérez, D-Los Angeles. He played an important role in carrying out the will of both speakers and helping to manage the sometimes-fractious Democratic caucus.

SACRAMENTO -- Hours after Greg Campbell awoke from surgery in 2013, the phone rang in his Sacramento hospital room. It was Gov. Jerry Brown, calling to wish him a speedy recovery from the operation that removed a large tumor from his brain.

Campbell -- a powerful, behind-the-scenes staffer in the Capitol -- thanked Brown for the call. Then he seized the moment to lobby the governor to approve an important bill by his boss to expand the Medi-Cal health care system for the poor.

"Greg says ... 'But governor, the only reason I'm alive today is because I have good health insurance. There are one-and-a-half-million Californians who don't have health insurance who could have insurance if you sign AB1x1,'" recalled former Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez, who was at Campbell's bedside during the call.

“Greg says … ‘But governor, the only reason I’m alive today is because I have good health insurance. There are 1½ million Californians who don’t have health insurance who could have insurance if you sign AB1x1,’” recalled former Assembly Speaker John Pérez, who was at Campbell’s bedside during the call.
