He began covering Sacramento in 1997 as a reporter for McClatchy Newspapers, and has been an associate editor for the California Journal; Salon.com; Salon’s Washington, D.C., correspondent; and the editor of Capitol Weekly.
Greg Lucas, who has authored the columnsince it debuted in January 2011, was recently appointed as the state librarian by Gov. Jerry Brown. In his new position, Lucas, a former San Francisco Chronicle political reporter who has, most recently, been a political blogger and host of a television interview show, will manage the California State Library, which is located near the Capitol. It houses historical books and documents, provides research to the governor and Legislature, and acts as a liaison with local libraries.
