Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today announced the appointment of Camille Wagner as legislative affairs secretary in the Office of the Governor, replacing Gareth Elliott, who has served in that role since 2011. Elliott will pursue opportunities in the private sector, and last week was appointed to the University of California Board of Regents by the Governor.
“Gareth has provided wise counsel and invaluable advice for the past four years, and he will continue to ably serve Californians in his new role on the Board of Regents,” said Governor Brown. “Camille is a trusted advisor and will step into this new role without missing a beat.”
Wagner, 32, of Sacramento, has been appointed legislative affairs secretary in the Office of the Governor, where she has served as chief deputy legislative affairs secretary since 2013 and was deputy legislative affairs secretary from 2011 to 2013. Wagner was legislative director for California Assemblymember Steven Bradford from 2009 to 2011, a legislative aide for California State Senator Christine Kehoe from 2005 to 2009 and a Senate fellow for the California Senate Fellows Program from 2004 to 2005. This position does not require Senate confirmation and the compensation is $140,004. Wagner is a Democrat
