Lobbyists and insiders in Sacramento have been trying to predict who will be replacing the Governor's Education Secretary Alan Bersin, the former US Attorney turned San Diego Superintendent, when he steps down on December 15th.
A reliable source in Sacramento says that Schwarzenegger's short list includes: failed Secretary of State candidate Bruce McPherson; Pete Mehas, Fresno County's Superintendent of schools; Former State Senator Dede Alpert; and possibly Margaret Fortune, the former asst. secretary in the Davis Adminstration and also a Director under Schwarzenegger's previous Secretary of Education Richard Riordan.
