Meet Gregg Fishman
I’m a family guy. Being a husband and father brings me joy. It also drives my desire to serve my community, and you and your family. A sense of duty and purpose led me to journalism, where I have proudly reported the facts, exposed corruption, and improved public discourse.
My Sacramento roots run deep (literally): I’m a proud Sacramento State grad, a member of the SMUD Board of Directors, and a community volunteer, who has planted 2,000 trees to beautify our community and make it greener.
As a SMUD Director, I’m proud that our rates are more than 30 percent lower than most other utility customers in California. That keeps $675 million in the Sacramento economy every year and saves the average SMUD residential customer about $375.
As a broadcast journalist, I helped expose corruption at the State Capitol and covered local government extensively.
I worked for the California State Association of Counties for six years, promoting the most effective and innovative county programs in the state.
I am a proven and pragmatic leader and I hope to apply that common sense approach to making Sacramento County work a little better.
