Capitol Alert

Taryn Luna joins Sacramento Bee’s Capitol Bureau

The Sacramento Bee’s Capitol Bureau on Monday welcomed new reporter Taryn Luna, who will cover the Capitol lobbying corps. She joins the bureau from The Boston Globe, where she worked as a business reporter. There, she says, she became an expert on office supplies, doughnuts and running shoes as she worked the retail beat.

Luna grew up in Dixon, before the corn maze, and attended Oregon State University. She wrote about homicides and public meetings at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette before moving to The Globe.

She’s excited about the opportunity to join the Capitol team, return to her roots and gorge herself on high quality Mexican food, something she says the East Coast just doesn’t understand.

You can reach her at, 916-326-5545 and on Twitter at @TarynLuna.
