Governor Jerry Brown has appointment retired federal district court judge Frank C. Damrell Jr. to the Delta Stewardship Council. Damrell will fill the seat previously held by Felicia Marcus, who was appointed to the State Water Resources Control Board last fall. The Delta Stewardship Council issued a statement quoting Council Chair Phil Isenberg as stating: “Judge Damrell is a terrific appointment. He is smart, focused and knowledgeable. Having a member with federal judicial experience will add substantially to our base of knowledge. He has a distinguished judicial record with significant decisions on environmental, commercial, employment, anti-trust and civil rights matters. We look forward having someone of Judge Damrell’s stature on the Council."
