Speaker’s top aide pitches Medi-Cal bill from his hospital bed
Sacramento Bee

Greg Campbell is raising standards for dedication to his job as chief of staff to Speaker John A. Peréz after using a get-well call from Gov. Jerry Brown as a way to pitch his boss’s Medi-Cal expansion bill. Campbell, 39, is recovering from two surgeries over the weekend to remove a golf-ball sized tumor in his brain, which was discovered last week. Campbell had been feeling sluggish prior to seeking medical attention, according to Peréz spokesman Steve Maviglio.
