A graduate of Howard University School of Law, Ewing has advised city councils, city administrators, city managers and elected boards and commissions on issues ranging from government and fiduciary responsibilities to matters of general law concerning land use, due process, the Brown Act, labor, risk management, city charters and other public policies.
"In a general counsel, professional competence is most critical," AC Transit board president Elsa Ortiz said. "Mix competence with a well-developed moral compass, a highly-valued work ethic, a clear understanding of the meaning of public service, enthusiasm and the stamina of the energizer bunny -- and that is Mr. Ewing. He is precisely the person we were seeking."
Ewing has 12 years of California municipal law experience. In addition, he has a highly successful litigation record and has provided impartial legal analysis and administrative guidance on a variety of ballot measures.
He was selected from among 40 applicants for the position. He lives in Alameda with his wife and three daughters.
