Hand-Off at The Top

Jonathan Thomas takes oath of office. (left to right, Robert Klein, Thomas, Melissa King, executive
director of  CIRM board, James Harrison, outside board counsel)

It was a statement that could be taken in more ways than one.

It came from outgoing CIRM Chairman Robert Klein today as he swore in his successor, Jonathan Thomas, a Los Angeles bond financier.

Thomas read the prescribed oath for all state employees. Then Klein shook his hand and said,
"I congratulate you on a journey that you will never forget."
Klein said one reason he is leaving his post is to spend more time
 with his wife and family.
