SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Janitors, food service and clerical support staff in the California State University system will not be getting a say on the CSU’s governing board.

Gov. Jerry Brown announced Wednesday that he vetoed legislation to require one of the governor’s 16 appointments to the California State University Board of Trustees be a permanent non-faculty member.

Brown says he’s not convinced it’s necessary to constrain the governor’s appointment process.

The Democratic governor instead suggests in a veto message that board trustees and CSU chancellor find ways to include non-faculty members in policy discussions.

Democratic Assemblyman Das Williams of Carpinteria introduced AB2386 to give 20,000 classified support staff employees a voice in university decision-making.
