After an almost 40 year Capitol career, Robbin Lewis-Coaxum is now enjoying retirement. Lewis-Coaxum had been chief of staff for Asm. Chris Holden since he was elected to office in 2012. Before that, she was chief of staff for former Asm. Wilmer Amina Carter for six years. She got her start at the Capitol as an unpaid intern in the office of then-Gov. Jerry Brown in 1975, but her first paid job was in 1980 when she was hired as an administrative assistant to former Asm. Curtis Tucker Sr. During her career she has worked as a consultant to both the Assembly Health Committee and Assembly Public Employment and Retirement Committee, legislative director for then-Asm. Ted Lempert, and as chief consultant for Assembly Floor Analysis. From 1998-2006 she was the director of the Assembly Fellowship program. Lewis-Coaxum says she has many fond memories of her time at the Capitol, but being able to mentor fellows and watch as their careers developed was one of the highlights. “I’ll miss the energy of the young, bright minds that come into the building,” she said. “I’ve had the opportunity to mentor so many bright people. Some of the people who have interned for me are in such great places now.” She jokes that as someone who used “Wite-Out” on typewritten documents, she was especially pleased to have learned so much from her colleagues including how to use the phone app, Venmo, which allows users to transfer money to others. “Every day I came into the office and I learned something new,” she said. Lewis-Coaxum says she doesn’t have any big plans for retirement except she’d like to work on projects around the house and spend time with her husband of 40 years, who is also retired. “We’ve never spent all day, seven days a week together, so we’ll see if we can keep our marriage going while in retirement,” she joked. “Talk to me in a year!” Meanwhile, Asm. Holden announced hiring Willie Armstrong as his new chief of staff. Armstrong served ten years in the US Air Force before pursuing a career in public policy. He was most recently the director of the Legislative Services Bureau for the CA Franchise Tax Board. In 2014, then-Pres. Barack Obama appointed Armstrong as a US Diplomat working as a Consular Officer at the US Embassy in Accra, Ghana and also served on the Yemen Task Force to help evacuate Americans out of Yemen. He’s also previously worked as chief of staff for then-Asm. Anna Caballero and former Asm. Nora Campos, and was undersecretary for the State and Consumer Services Agency from 2011-2013.

Veteran Capitol lobbyist John Valencia reports that he has launched his own firm, Valencia Government Relations, Inc. The firm’s Sacramento office is located at 1001 K Street, 6th Floor. Valencia was previously a partner at Wilke Fleury LLP, where he began lobbying in 1987. He’s also previously been legal counsel and treasurer for the Women in California Leadership and the California Latino Legislative Caucus Foundation. Valencia says he will “continue his long-time lobbying representation of national and global leaders in vision health care delivery, biotechnology and biopharmaceutical advances, genomic sequencing, and front-line medical practice.” He also reports that lobbyist Katherine Pettibone has joined the firm. Pettibone most recently served as vice president, western region for the American Insurance Assn. (which is now the American Property Casualty Insurance Assn.), where she had worked since 2016. She was also previously director of legislative affairs for the Civil Justice Assn. of California for six years. When she’s not lobbying, Pettibone competes as “a world-class sailor in Olympic classes, offshore and other grand prix racing.” Contact: Valencia, email@example.com.
The Capitol’s north, south and west steps won’t fully escape from the scaffolding and plastic wrap in which they are currently encased for at least another month. The project to rehab the porticoes and balconies at those entrances that began in July and was expected to be completed by Monday has met a few delays. Luis Salinas, the Assembly’s assistant facilities manager, blamed the weather and rain, saying both hindered the conditions in which tile may be set and cured. The good news for the north and south steps is that they’re due to break free at least halfway on January 11. Salinas says the scaffolding and wrap should be down to the balcony level by then with their full releases coming by February 4. The larger west steps will remain wrapped up a little while longer; Salinas says they should be clear by February 27. While the Capitol’s outside appearance will be a bit dim for Monday, the inside will be its normally illuminated self when the Legislature returns. The plastic blocks some of the natural light from entering through windows in the Senate and Assembly chambers, but the effect is negligible. Both chambers appear ready for lights, camera and action come Monday. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Dept. of Conservation has issued a reminder that as of Jan. 1 its Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR) was renamed to the California Geologic Energy Management Division (CalGEM). The name change was first announced in November along with Conservation’s notice of a moratorium on issuing new permits for “high-pressure extraction” of oil and gas in California. Conservation’s Dir. David Shabazian says: “This division began in 1915, when the focus was on the development and production of petroleum resources. This mission has since evolved, and protection of public health, safety, and the environment is a heightened priority. As we continue to focus on this enhanced priority, we are also helping to guide the broader transition to a low-carbon future.” Conservation says that the name change was included in AB 1057 and additional elements of the bill are:

The Dept. of Toxic Substances Control reports having reached an agreement with Freon Free, an appliance recycling company, in which the company will pay a $145,760 fine and continue to operate. DTSC says the company was “burning hazardous waste without a permit” and “treating two to three ammonia containing refrigerators per week by bolt-cutting refrigerant lines and releasing their contents into a container with water” without a permit. DTSC says its inspectors also found at the company’s locations in Fairfield, American Canyon and Orland: “Freon Free was treating and storing hazardous waste without a permit; removing materials that require special handling at locations that were not certified; inadequately training staff on how to manage waste; and using other hazardous waste management practices that conflict with the state’s Hazardous Waste Control Law and Health and Safety Code.” Contact: Gamaliel Ortiz 916 327 4383.
