In a TV interview airing today, Assembly Speaker John Pérez managed to be both pro and con the appointment of Janet Napolitano as the new president of UC. He was against the search process which he said was not open enough. On the other hand, due to what he said was luck despite the bad process, UC has ended up with an "incredibly talented" executive. The fact that she has a political background, Pérez said, didn't have anything to do with regental concerns about interventions by the governor and legislature in UC affairs. He said he had had concerns about her administration of immigration policies on the one hand but, on the other hand, she was just enforcing the law. All in all, it was a very two-handed interview.
