David Lanier of Davis has been appointed secretary of the California Labor and Workforce Development Agency by Gov. Jerry Brown.

Lanier replaces Marty Morgenstern, who has served as secretary since 2011. While Morgenstern is retiring, he will continue to serve the governor as a senior adviser without compensation.

“Marty is a man steeped in the ways of politics and the practices of labor management relations. He has provided invaluable advice for decades and will continue to do so,” Brown said in a news release. “David has already proven himself more than ready to take on this new role.”

Lanier, 46, has served as chief deputy legislative affairs secretary for Brown since 2011. He served as special adviser to the Speaker at the California State Assembly Speaker’s Office of Member Services from 1999 to 2011.

Lanier was chief of staff for Assemblywoman Grace Napolitano from 1997 to 1998, consultant for the Joint Legislative Government Oversight Task Force from 1996 to 1997 and legislative director for Assemblywoman Carole Migden from 1995 to 1996.

This position requires Senate confirmation and the annual compensation is $182,500. Lanier is a Democrat.

Morgenstern, 78, of Oakland, was California’s labor secretary since 2011. Prior to that, he was a consultant for the University of California on labor relations matters from 2003 to 2011 and director of the California Department of Personnel Administration from 1999 to 2003 and from 1981 to 1982.

    Congrats to David! That should boost his public pension! Of course he is a Democrat! Does it ever occur to Brown that he is supposed to be governor of all the people? The problem is we independents and other non-dems have to pay these huge pensions as well!
