SACRAMENTO -- Yet another member of Gov. Jerry Brown’s team is packing her bags.
Elizabeth Ashford, who served as the governor’s top deputy press secretary, has announced she is leaving the administration next month.
Ashford was one of a handful of staffers in the Brown administration who also worked for Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, where she served as chief deputy Cabinet secretary. Immediately before joining Brown’s staff, she worked as a spokeswoman for BP during the Gulf oil spill.
Ashford’s departure follows a series of resignations of top Brown staffers, including his top administrative aide Jim Humes, senior policy adviser Julie Henderson and press secretary Gil Duran.
