Former California Gov. Pete Wilson has brokered more than a few deals in his long career. Wilson spent over three decades in the political realm, serving stints in the California Assembly and the U.S. Senate as well as 11 years as mayor of San Diego before his two terms in the governor’s office. He is currently an active member of numerous corporate boards and think tanks, as well as a consultant to the Los Angeles-based Bingham McCutcheon law group. In that role, he is representing Cal Expo in its ongoing negotiations with the NBA to build the Sacramento Kings a new arena on that site. We sat down with him recently to discuss what promises to be one of the most highly complex development proposals in the Sacramento Region’s history.
