***Until We Meet Again***

It has been an honor and pleasure to provide you with information and commentary about state government these past years.

Today I am accepting an appointment from Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to serve as the Secretary for State and Consumer Services with the mission to hold down government spending.  I am resigning my position the Board of Equalization and turning it over to the capable hands of my chief deputy, Barbara Alby.

Because I now have only one boss, the Governor, this will be the last edition of the Leonard Letter for 2010.  I need to focus exclusively on helping the Governor with the duties he assigns me. 

Thank you for your comments, support, suggestions and prayers, as they are all greatly appreciated.

You may continue to reach me at or connect with me on Facebook.
