The Gov's staff
|Read the following list of Schwarzenegger administration departutres very carefully from the LA Times' Jordan Rau on the Political Muscle blog. The second paragraph is good for a laugh.|
Chief administration lobbyist Richard Costigan.
Beloved press secretary Margita Thompson, whose departure leaves few Latinos in Schwarzenegger's administration, excepting Rosario Marin, secretary of the State and Consumer Services Agency; Henry Renteria, director of the Office of Emergency Services, and Fabian Nunez, Speaker of the California Assembly.
Sunne Wright McPeak, the governor's secretary for business, transportation and housing.
Education adviser Alan Bersin (whose tenure was complicated by being frequently confused with the star of "The Exorcist," Ellen Burstyn).
Longtime FOA (Friend of Arnold) and senior adviser Bonnie Reiss.
Joe Desmond, undersecretary for energy affairs, who left because his office was getting inexplicably warmer and warmer.
Cabinet Secretary Fred Aguiar.
