Newsom’s Treasure Island appointee before supes

Mayor Gavin Newsom has reappointed Claudine Cheng to the Treasure Island Development Authority Board of Directors for four-year term ending February 2010.

For that to happen, she must pass muster before the Board of Supervisors. On Thursday, the board’s Rules Committee meets to vote on the appointment.

Back in November, Cheng was among a number of candidates in a crowded race vying to represent District 3 on the Board of Supervisor, a seat vacated by termed out Aaron Peskin. The race was won by now Board of Supervisors President David Chiu.

The Treasure Island board has 10 members, with seven appointed by the mayor. The board makes decisions around planning and redevelopment. It is also monitoring the city’s negotiations to purchase the island from the U.S. Navy.
