Sacramento Woman Named to Board of Governors


By a MetNews Staff Writer


State Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez said Friday he has appointed private consultant Jeannine English, 52, of Sacramento to the California State Bar Board of Governors.

“Jeanine English’s depth of experience in management will go far in providing guidance to the State Bar Board of Governors,” Nunez said in a statement. “She will be an enormous asset to the board.”

“It will be a real honor working with the Board of Governors,” English told the MetNews. “I look forward to working on issues of volunteerism . . . elder issues and diversity issues.”

English, who has a master’s degree in business administration from Golden Gate University, was an executive director of the state Little Hoover Commission, and an assistant executive director of the California Transportation Commission. She has also served as a member of the Board of Directors of KVIE, Inc. Public Television, as vice-president of the Jewish Family Services of Sacramento, and as financial auditor for the state departments of Finance and Health Services.

In January, English formed her own consulting firm, Jeannine English & Associates, which provides consulting services to various clients, including the Rumsey Indian Rancheria and the California Small Business Association.

Four public members of the 23-person Board of Governors are appointed by the governor and one each by the Assembly Speaker and the Senate Rules Committee. The remainder are lawyers elected by their peers in geographic districts.
