The Horseshoe game of musical chairs continued today as Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's office announced replacements for Cabinet Secretary and Deputy Chief of Staff Victoria Bradshaw, who was tappedto head the Labor and Workforce Development Agency.
State and Consumer Services Agency Secretary Fred Aguiar will step in as deputy chief of staff and senior advisor. Aguiar was tapped for a second round as SCSA head in March when then-SCSA head Rosairo Marin stepped down in the wake of reports that she gave paid speeches.
Aguiar, a former Republican assemblyman, has also served as cabinet secretary and on the Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board. The salary for his new job is $175,000.
The governor also tapped SCSA Undersecretary Scott Reid as his next cabinet secretary. Reid, who's also worked for the Department of Consumer Affairs and as chief of staff to Aguiar during his terms in the Assembly and on the San Bernardino Board of Supervisors, was Schwarzenegger's chief deputy cabinet secretary in 2006. Reid will earn $147,900.
