Gray Davis
Former Governor of California; Of Counsel, Loeb & Loeb LLP

Gray Davis, a former governor of California, is Of Counsel at Loeb & Loeb LLP. While governor from 1999 to 2003, he signed legislation to strengthen California's K-12 education system, increase accountability in schools and expand access to higher education with a record number of scholarships and college loans. Davis made record investments in infrastructure, created four Centers for Science and Innovation on University of California campuses and expanded state health insurance for an additional 1 million children. He provided more than $2.5 billion for job training, employee recruitment, tuition assistance and job-placement services. Under Davis, California was one of the first states to authorize state funding for stem-cell research and to pass laws to reduce global warming and greenhouse emissions. A former lieutenant governor, state controller and assemblyman, Davis is the recipient of a Bronze Star for his military service in Vietnam. He holds a bachelor's degree from Stanford University and a law degree from Columbia University.
