Carole Migden Gets Recycled After All ... But Not By Don Perata

Posted By on Wed, Nov 26, 2008 at 5:00 PM

Earlier this month, the San Francisco Chronicle's flies on the wall, Matier & Ross, wrote a little piece about Carole Migden, the Jason Voorhies of California politics (you just can't kill this woman's political career).

According to M&R, Migden -- who was trounced in her re-election bid for State Senate by Mark Leno -- was handed a $132,178-a year gig on the state's Integrated Waste Management Board by Don Perata. Migden's experience in recycling is limited to dubiously re-using campaign funds, but that's not what this board is about. It's about earning a little bread while flying in a political holding pattern and pondering one's next move.

One problem, though. Perata didn't appoint Migden to the board -- he tapped
Sheila Kuehl.

But, remember Migden's Voorhies-like tenacity. Today the Sacramento Bee got wind that Migden will likely be managing waste after all -- thanks to an appointment by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The gov didn't appoint Matier & Ross to jack shit.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
