CAPITOL WEEKLY TOP 100 LIST FOR 2011
38. DONNA LUCAS, Lucas Public Affairs
Communications consultant Donna Lucas learned the insides of the Capitol during the Deukmejian administration, and she learned her lessons well: Since then she has developed into a major communications force, and the go-to person for companies and people (State Fund, Chevron, Maria Shriver) looking for communications advice and strategy. She’s also got a role in yet another one of those Capitol family power cabals – her brother is Senate enviro guru Kip Lipper and her husband is former Chronicle Sacrament Bureau Chief Greg Lucas, perhaps the best-sourced newsie in the Capitol. Greg, by the way, is a contributing editor to Capitol Weekly and hosts our “Politics on Tap” TV show.
