Darrell Steinberg '84 Listed among Wall Street Journal's '13 to Watch'
Darrell Steinberg '84, California state Senate President pro Tem, has been listed among the Wall Street Journal's list of "13 People to Watch in 2013." The newspaper called Steinberg one of California's most powerful figures and suggested that the Democratic senator's influence is likely to grow in the wake of the election of Democratic supermajorities in both houses of the state Legislature.
After graduating from King Hall, Steinberg worked as an employee rights attorney with the California State Employees Association and an administrative law judge and mediator, then served as Sacramento City Council member and State Assembly member before moving on to the Senate in 2006. He became Senate leader in August 2008.
