Gov. Jerry Brown has filled four vacancies on the 26-member University of California Board of Regents.
The governor has battled with UC President Janet Napolitano over tuition increases and the university’s administrative costs. And some of his more recent regent appointments have taken a more critical tone toward UC leadership.
Friday’s appointees include one of Brown’s senior policy advisors, Lark Park – but also a longtime UC official, Maria Anguiano, who spent five years in the president’s office.
The governor also appointed former Democratic Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher and Mandalay Entertainment Group chairman Peter Guber.
The appointments are for 12-year terms.
