John Garamendi names campaign staffers

By Josh Richman
Monday, April 6th, 2009 at 5:25 pm in 2010 governor's race, Ellen Tauscher, John Garamendi, U.S. House.

Though he may have been “checking out” the possibility of running for the 10th Congressional District seat that Ellen Tauscher presumably is about to vacate, Lt. Gov. John Garamendi seemed to be moving on with his 2010 gubernatorial bid today as he rolled out some campaign staff announcements.

San Francisco-based syndicated progressive talk-radio host Peter Collins, 55, will be the Garamendi for Governor campaign’s “messaging and communications” consultant; Collins, whose radio career stretches back 27 years, has done similar campaign work in the past for Nancy Pelosi, John Vasconcellos, Pete McCloskey and Michael Yaki.

And Brian Young — who from 1995 though 2000 was the Democratic National Committee’s information-services director — will be the Garamendi campaign’s chief techology officer, overseeing all online services and strategy. Young has worked for Sun Microsystems in the Bay Area and oversees, as well as doing technical consulting for the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund in Washington, D.C.

    Wow, Collins has quite a track record! All losers except Speaker Nancy P. and She Who Must Be Obeyed probably didn’t need his help. Young is even less impressive.
