The latest on California politics and government

A friend of first lady Anne Gust Brown has been appointed by Brown's husband, Gov. Jerry Brown, to the State Personnel Board.

Lauri Shanahan, 50, held various positions at Gap Inc. from 1992 to 2008, replacing Gust Brown as chief administrative officer at the company in 2005. Shanahan's appointment was announced this afternoon.

Shanahan, of Woodside, is currently a principal at Maroon Peak Advisors, a retail and consumer products consultancy, according to the governor's office. Like the governor, she is a Democrat.

The personnel board settles disputes between employees and the state. The position pays $40,669 a year, and the appointment requires Senate confirmation.
