SACRAMENTO — Juan Pedro Gaffney’s career as a Bay Area choir director (https://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/article/Musical-epiphany-S-F-group-uses-rare-2816116.php)would seem to make him an odd fit for a six-figure job with the state deciding whether people who say they were hurt on the job should receive workers’ compensation pay.

Gaffney, 80, said he’s well aware that “people who have served long in the field look with raised eyebrows” at his appointment to the state Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board.
But what he lacked in experience for a six-year term on a board that consists mostly of attorneys, Gaffney made up with a key connection: He considers Gov. Jerry Brown, his former classmate at St. Ignatius High School in San Francisco, a longtime friend. And that, he admits, is how he got the job. https://www.sfchronicle.com/politics/article/Jerry-Brown-friend-Juan-Pedro-Gaffney-job-puts-an-13221175.php

Sounds perfectly qualified to me......LOL

And he's 80 yet. Fucking retire and let some equally unqualified younger fella have a job he isn't up to doing on a tax payer dime. LOL

Jerry Brown is an example of someone who never gained any wisdom through the experiences of his adult life.
