In 2005, then-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger surprised many fellow Republicans when he appointed Susan Kennedy -- a former aide to Governor Gray Davis and one-time executive director of the California Democratic Party -- as his chief of staff. The Los Angeles Times has called Kennedy "the most enduring force in state government of the last decade." She joins us in-studio, as part of our "First Person" series of interviews with the leaders, innovators and others who make the Bay Area unique.

Host: Dave Iverson


  • Susan Kennedy, former chief of staff for Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, former deputy chief of staff for Governor Gray Davis, board member of the California Health Benefit Exchange and a private consultant focusing on clean tech
