On January 22, 2021, Governor Newsom reappointed Member Ari Krantz to the Board of PERB. Member Krantz’ term had expired at the end of 2020. Presumably, Member Krantz was reappointed for a full 5-year term. Member Krantz’ reappointment will require Senate confirmation.
In addition, Governor Newsom also designated Member Eric Banks as the new Chair of PERB. PERB has not had an official Chair since Mark Gregersen left the Board in June 2018. The Chair position is designated by the Governor and does not require Senate Confirmation.
[Note: A prior version of this post incorrectly stated that PERB has not had an official Chair since Anita Martinez. The post has been corrected to note that after Anita Martinez served as Chair, Mark Gregersen served as Chair of PERB until June 2018.]
