Cal Alum Edges Out Gavin On CA Jobs Initiative

Gavin Newsom 'blindsided' as governor names jobs czar

Read : "Rossi, a UC Berkeley grad, held a number of executive positions at Bank of America, including senior vice president and chief risk officer, before retiring from the private sector for eight years."
Ex Officio UC Regent Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom seems to have been surprised by this:
"OK, but wait. Wasn't that what Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom's "growth and competitiveness agenda," introduced three weeks ago, was supposed to do?

"Blindsided," said a staffer in Newsom's office after I forwarded the press release. "Didn't even know this announcement was being made today.""
