Two San Diego County residents were appointed to seats on state panels today by Gov. Jerry Brown.
Escondido police Chief Craig Carter was named to the State 9-1-1 Advisory Board.
Carter, a 53-year-old who has led the EPD for about three years, will serve on a panel that advises the Telecommunications Division of the Department of General Services on policies, practices and procedures for the California 911 Emergency Communications Office; technical and operational standards; training standards for county coordinators and managers; and related issues.
The Republican from Carlsbad, who is president of the San Diego Police Chiefs and Sheriffs Association, will receive no compensation for his service.
The governor also appointed Julie Austin, 61, to the California State Council on Developmental Disabilities.
The Oceanside resident is an in-home supportive services caregiver and advocate on special education and disabilities issues. Before that, she owned Brengle Terrace Animal Hospital.
Austin, a Democrat, will receive $100 per diem to serve on a board that works to improve services to the developmentally disabled and their families.
Neither position requires Senate confirmation.
