Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

ashford.jpgElizabeth Ashford, who left Gov. Jerry Brown's administration in April, has opened her own public affairs and communications consultancy, and to celebrate she hosted a party on Thursday at the K Bar in Sacramento.

Ashford, 38, was Brown's chief deputy press secretary and worked previously in former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's administration and as a spokeswoman for BP.

On her business website, EAshford Public Affairs & Communications, Ashford says she "helps businesses, organizations and individuals make sound policy and political decisions, and talk about them effectively."

Ashford declined to identify her clients, saying only that they are involved in climate change and transportation.

That she has business at all, she said, is "very encouraging."

"The alternative," Ashford said, "is quite grim."
