Terry Tamminen, California's New Environmental Chief
"Thirteen years ago, Terry Tamminen was a Malibu pool cleaner and part-time actor with a gift for charming influential people and a resume that chronicled more rambling than a Jack Kerouac novel.
Last year, Schwarzenegger appointed him environmental protection secretary. On Friday, he named Tamminen his Cabinet secretary. The $123,000-a-year job makes him chief liaison between the governor and the heads of the major state agencies."
