A San Diego woman was reappointed by Gov. Jerry Brown Wednesday to the California Building Standards Commission, which reviews, approves and publishes state building standards.
Elley Klausbruckner, 48, has served on the commission for three years.
Klausbruckner has been the owner and principal at Klausbruckner and Associates Inc., a fire and building code consulting company, since 1998.
She’s a member of the National Fire Protection Association, International Code Council and the Society of Fire Protection Engineers.
The position requires Senate confirmation. There is no compensation.
Klausbruckner, registered without party preference, was quoted by The Washington Post in December about the Oakland warehouse fire that took three dozen lives:
“In the years since the recession, budgets for building-code enforcement have fallen significantly in most cities, said Elley Klausbruckner, a San Diego-based fire and building-code consultant, ‘so there’s less budget to be able to police these types of facilities.’”
On Tuesday, the governor reappointed San Diego resident Elizabeth Morris to the board of directors of the California Housing Partnership Corp., a nonprofit that works to increase the supply of affordable housing in the state.
Morris, 69, who has served on the board for four years, is a consultant and former president and CEO of the San Diego Housing Commission.
Her position requires Senate confirmation; there is no compensation. Morris is a Democrat.
