Once again, our firm is very proud to announce that President of California Advocates, Mike Belote, Esq., was recently named as one of Capitol Weekly’s Top 100 for 2019, an annual look at “people who aren’t elected to office but who wield decisive influence on California politics or policy — or both.”
Capitol Weekly is a publication that covers California’s government and politics and their Annual Top 100 List ranks California’s top unelected political power players, and Mike was ranked #52! Capitol Weekly’s Top 100 recognizes individuals who devote their professional lives to fighting for – or against – issues of state politics and policy, including lobbyists, bureaucrats, activists, trade group leaders, Capitol staffers and journalists. Here is the excerpt pertaining to Mike:

A friend described Mike Belote’s California Advocates as “a real white-shoe lobbying firm,” which means it’s been around a long time, has lots of blue chip clients and is respected. Belote is the President of California Advocates, which has a client list that includes Apple, Delta Airlines, Equifax, Coca-Cola, Monsanto, NRG and more, and dozens of associations in diverse areas such as real estate, health care, law, agriculture and others. Belote’s philanthropy includes such recipients as Volunteers of America, the Public Legal Services Society at McGeorge Law School, and My Sister’s House, an organization focused on domestic violence and trafficking in the Asian Pacific Islander community. Full disclosure: Belote serves on the board of Open California, publisher of Capitol Weekly.
Congratulations to Mike!
