California Governor Fills Top Tech Post

California Gov. Gray Davis yesterday tapped San Bernardino County's CIO Eli Cortez to head the California Department of Information Technology (DOIT). Replacing John Thomas Flynn, Cortez is only the second to hold the California CIO position since the department's inception in 1995. According to Gov. Davis' announcement, Cortez will be paid a reduced salary of $105,886 – five percent lower than the position previously paid.

In announcing Cortez' appointment, Davis also tapped two officials to serve on his Y2K Compliance Team: Robert Dell'Agostino, acting DOIT chief deputy director and Christina Polly, deputy director of California's Department of General Services.
