FROM:       Lloyd Throne

SUBJECT:   New Acting CSD Director



On May 3, 2010, Cliff Allenby will be the new Acting CSD Director.  Because of the importance of the CSD programs and the large volume of associated ARRA funding, this transition needs to happen.


Cliff Allenby is a well-respected, dedicated public servant with over 35 years of state service.  He is currently the Chair of the Managed Risk Medical Insurance Board.  Previous appointments include interim Director of the Department of Social Services from February 2006-April 2007 and Director of the Department of Developmental Services from 1997- to 2006.  Prior to this, Cliff was the Secretary of the then- California Health and Welfare Agency and spent over 25 years at the Department of Finance.


I am confident that Cliff Allenby will continue CSD’s mission and our dedication to the low-income population of California.
