Columnist: Perfect guy to be next UC President—Gray Davis

Friday, April 19, 2013

Newsman and author Joe Matthews, who’s currently a fellow at the Center for Social Cohesion at Arizona State University, blogs that the recalled former governor (pictured) makes the most sense to replace Mark Yudof when the latter signs out in August. An excerpt:

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom wants someone who understands politics and non-academic leadership – in an LA Times story, he mentioned President Clinton and former governors in states such as Indiana and Oklahoma that have led universities. The regents want someone who can battle Sacramento and raise lots of money from private sources. And Gov. Jerry Brown wants someone who will listen to Gov. Jerry Brown.

Put those things together, and doesn’t this sound like a job for Gray Davis?
