State Bar Board Member Named to Head California AARP


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Jeannine English, a public member of the State Bar Board of Governors, has been appointed California state president of the American Association of Retired Persons, the organization said in a release.

“We are thrilled to have Jeannine as our new state president,” a spokesperson said Thursday. “She brings a depth and breadth of experience that will greatly benefit AARP’s more than 3 million California members.”

Prior to her appointment, English served for two years on AARP’s National Policy Council, an advisory committee to the AARP National Board of Directors.

English, 53, was named to the State Bar board last year by Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez. She had a long tenure in state government, including more than 10 years as executive director of the Little Hoover Commission, which investigates state government operations with the aim of improving their efficiency, economy and service to the public.

She also served as assistant executive director of the California Transportation Commission.

As volunteer state president, English will lead the AARP’s California Executive Council and work in partnership with the state director and in collaboration with other volunteers and staff to achieve AARP’s strategic priorities in California, the group said.

English, who has a master’s degree in business administration from Golden Gate University, has also served as a member of the Board of Directors of KVIE, Inc. Public Television, as vice-president of the Jewish Family Services of Sacramento, and as financial auditor for the state departments of Finance and Health Services.

In January of last year, English formed her own consulting firm, Jeannine English & Associates, which has provided consulting services to various clients, including the Rumsey Indian Rancheria and the California Small Business Association.

 She is married to Sacramento attorney Howard Dickstein, who represents a number of Indian tribes with gaming operations in the state.

    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them.

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
