_At the meeting in Ventura, Daniel Richards joined a unanimous vote to pick Jim Kellogg as the new president of the five-member commission, which oversees wildlife management. Richards, appointed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2008, may remain a member until his term expires in January and has given no indication of leaving early.
Richards will apparently stay on the commission until the end of his term, and then it's up to California Governor Jerry Brown to reappoint Richards or choose a new commissioner. Anyone want to place odds on that happening?
