On January 7, 2019, California State Treasurer Fiona Ma appointed ACSS President Frank Ruffino as Deputy Treasurer of Pension and Benefits for the State Treasurer’s Office. He accepted the position and was sworn in during Fiona Ma’s inauguration ceremony as the 34th Treasurer of the State of California. Ma has been a supporter of ACSS for many years and understands the issues facing California State managers and supervisors and other excluded employees. In return, ACSS has endorsed Ma in her campaigns and we congratulate her in her new position as State Treasurer. Ruffino and Ma have continued to build a strong professional relationship and ACSS views Ruffino’s new position as a positive step.
ACSS Executive Director Rocco Paternoster comments, “Frank’s hard work, service and dedication to ACSS including holding multiple leadership positions, has been invaluable to the members. ACSS members have enjoyed many wins over the years of Frank’s service and wish to congratulate Frank on this amazing honor and achievement he is receiving in this new appointment.”
Ruffino said, “I am humbled, honored, grateful and proud that an ACSS member has been given this special opportunity by the Treasurer to serve the State of California.”
At the next ACSS Board Meeting on January 19th, 2019, an election for the vacancies created by the departure of the Executive Vice President and President will be held among the current Board of Directors members.
