More on Klein's 2010 Departure Plans

Plans by Robert Klein, chairman of the California stem cell agency, to step down from the post in 2010 drew coverage Monday from the San Francisco Weekly.

Peter Jamison quoted Don Gibbons, chief spokesman for CIRM, as saying Klein plans to rededicate himself to his real estate investment business.

Gibbons was quoted as saying,
"He can't afford to take a second term. It's a huge financial commitment for him to do this, because he cannot run his business at anywhere near full capacity. He's been saying this internally for a very long time."
Jamison wrote,
“Gibbons said Klein may continue to be involved with CIRM in some way after 2010, noting that he would have to be appointed if he were to remain on the agency's governing board.“
