Retiring Gov. George Deukmejian on Friday appointed Jesse Huff, his state director of finance since 1984, to a $90,852-a-year post on the newly created Integrated Waste Management Board. The job is one of the choicest plums in state government and carries a five-year term for Huff, whose appointment is not subject to confirmation by the Senate. Huff, 47, was picked by Deukmejian from relative obscurity as a Republican staffer in the Legislature and made chief deputy director of finance in 1983.

Mateo, chief of the trust services division in the treasurer's office, agreed. "We will sell bonds just as fast as we legally can," he said.
