According to a press release from the law offices of Carroll, Burdick & McDonough, governor Schwarzenegger has appointed Angela Bradstreet, the managing partner of the that firm, as California's next Labor Commissioner. Her firm does a considerable about of union-side labor work, but she has primarily represented management. She frequently defended wage and hour claims for employers. Bradstreet is a former president of the Bar Association of San Francisco and a Democrat who worked on Senator Dianne Feinstein's campaign as co-chair, but also endorsed Schwarzenegger and publicly criticized Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides. The appointment requires approval from the state senate.
