BAC APPLAUDS APPOINTMENT OF NEW JOBS CZAR
The Bay Area Council heartily applauded Governor Jerry Brown’s appointment this week of Michael Rossi as California jobs czar. “It’s hard to imagine a more important assignment than creating jobs in this troubled economy,” said Janet Lamkin, Bay Area Council Chairwoman and California State President of Bank of America. “Mike is a seasoned executive, well up to the challenge. And he has a passion for people and experience finding solutions.” The Council looks forward to working closely with Mr. Rossi, a former BankAmerica executive, in helping achieve his stated goals of streamlining and invigorating the state’s economic development infrastructure and advising the governor on regulatory, legislative and executive actions to stimulate job creation. We have already engaged with Mr. Rossi on his agenda. Jim Wunderman was asked to meet with Mr. Rossi for an hour the week prior to his appointment. We also expect to meet with Mr. Rossi during our upcoming Sacramento Day on August 29 when we can allow him to directly engage with our members.
