Gov. appoints Carole Migden to Waste Board

SACRAMENTO, CA

He picked Carole Migden of San Francisco for the $132,000-a-year slot on the Integrated Waste Management Board.

Schwarzenegger spokeswoman Rachel Cameron says Migden's 17 years in government will help the board with its goal of reducing waste.

Migden suffered a rare defeat for an incumbent legislator when she was ousted by Assemblyman Mark Leno in the June Democratic primary.

She joins two termed-out Democratic legislators as new members on the board: former Sen. Sheila Kuehl of Santa Monica and Assemblyman John Laird of Santa Cruz.
