Gov. Jerry Brown has appointed former Sacramento City Councilwoman Lauren Hammond to a six-figure job on the state Gambling Control Commission.
Hammond, a Democrat who served on the city council from 1997 until last year, will earn $128,109 a year on the commission, which regulates tribal casinos, card rooms and remote caller bingo operations.
Hammond, 55, worked as a consultant in the state Senate from 1981 to 2004. The new position requires confirmation by the Senate.
