Capital Alliance, Strategic Advocacy & Public Relations Firm
Bio: A 20 year veteran of the Capitol, Matt Gray has worked on every major public policy issue to come before the California State Legislature. He has worked as both as a Deputy Chief of Staff to the Dean of the Legislature, and most recently as a contract advocate for numerous HiTech and information technology (IT) clients as well as a venture capital firm on developing emergent technologies. Formally educated in communications and public relations, as well as the organic chemistry, Matt has extensive technical experience. In 2010, Matt was elected by Sacramento voters to the City Council for the proposed formation of Arden Arcade as California's newest city. While cityhood for Arden Arcade was ultimately defeated, Matt remains an active member of his community, and is known for being a strong proponent of improving California's small business climate. Matt is often called upon by the media for interviews on public safety and energy matters, juxtaposed with the Governor, Speaker of the Assembly, and Senate Pro Tempore. He has also been a repeat guest on POWER 106 in Burbank, and on the Bruce Maiman show, Talk 1530 AM, KFBK, as well as The John & Ken Show, AM 640 in Burbank.
