As showdown over university's budget looms, Brown names top legislative deputy to UC board - THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Gov. Jerry Brown has filled the last opening on the University of California's governing board with a member of his staff. The governor on Friday named his legislative affairs secretary, Gareth Elliott, to a 12-year term on the UC Board of Regents. The 44-year-old Elliott is a Humboldt State University graduate who has been Brown's top legislative liaison for five years. The appointment comes amid a looming budget showdown over funding for the 10-campus university system. Over Brown's objections, a majority of the regents in November approved a series of provisional tuition increases UC President Janet Napolitano said would be implemented unless the system received more money from Sacramento.
