New FA Lobbyist–Jim Bruner

by Myrna Hays

We are pleased to announce the selection of Jim Bruner as our new FA lobbyist. He replaces Ralph Ochoa, who has been appointed as a Regent and therefore no longer represents us because of conflict of interest.

As Director of Governmental Affairs for Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, James W. Bruner, Jr. has 25 years of experience with the state legislature and numerous administrations. His practice focuses on governmental regulatory issues, primarily those relating to finance, tax and corporate securities broker-dealer and investment companies.

Prior to joining Orrick in 1984, Jim served for ten years as Executive Director of the League to Save Lake Tahoe, where he gained national prominence for elevating concern for Lake Tahoe to a level of national commitment. He is an active supporter of the UC Davis Lake Tahoe Research Station, which recently hosted President Clinton and Vice President Gore.

A fourth generation Californian, Jim holds a B.S. in Forestry and Conservation and a  M.S. in Wildland Resource Science from UCB and currently serves on the UCB Foundation Executive Committee. He is active in the campaign to renovate the historic Edwards Stadium on the Cal campus for a new international track and field and soccer venue. He resides in Davis, California,  where his daughter attends high school; his son is a student at UCB. He has worked on numerous projects for UC in recent years.
