The two openings will be appointed to the CIWMB Board by the Assembly Speaker Fabian NÃºÃ±ez and State Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata and environmental groups agree that the best candidates would be outgoing State Senator Wes Chesbro and Assembly Member Fran Pavley. Both have extensive environmental backgrounds. Senator Chesbro is an experienced legislator on the issues of waste management and recycling, which stem back from being a previous CIWMB board member. Asm. Pavley co-authored this year's landmark Greenhouse Gas emission reduction legislation, as well as two successful e-waste recycling measures.
