By a MetNews Staff Writer


Gov. Jerry Brown yesterday announced his selection of Workers’ Compensation Judge Rosa Moran and Sacramento attorney Barry Broad to state posts.

Moran, 50, of Oakland, was tapped to serve as administrative director of the Division of Workers’ Compensation. This position requires Senate confirmation and the compensation is $132,179.

Broad, 53, was selected to chair the Employment Training Panel, a business and labor supported state agency which assists employers by providing funds to off-set the costs of job skills training. He has served on the panel since 2002.

This position does not require Senate confirmation and the compensation is $100 per diem.

Moran, of Oakland, has served as a workers’ compensation judge since 2005. Prior to this, she spent 17 years in private practice.

She is a member of the Oakland Bench and Bar Association, the Filipina Women’s Network, the University of San Francisco Alumni Association, and the University of the Pacific Alumni Association.

Broad is currently managing partner of Broad & Gusman, LLP, which he established in 1994. Previously, Broad was the legislative director of the California Teamsters Public Affairs Council from 1985 to 1994 and a legal advisor for the Public Employment Relations Board from 1981 to 1984.

Both are Democrats.
