Schwarzenegger Names Finance Director

Governor Schwarzenegger named Tom Campbell, a former Bay Area congressman and dean of the business school at the University of California, Berkeley, director of the state finance department.

Campbell, who also served a term in the state Senate in the mid-1990s, is considered a good fit with the moderate Schwarzenegger, although both told reporters at a Capitol press conference they have no plans to raise taxes to solve the state´s fiscal problems.

Campbell replaces Donna Arduin in the position, who stepped down last month for personal reasons.
