Former Pleasanton banker appointed to lead California Pollution Control Financing Authority

'We hit it out of the ballpark with Nancee,' State Treasurer Ma says

California State Treasurer Fiona Ma recently appointed former Pleasanton banker Nancee Robles as executive director of the California Pollution Control Financing Authority (CPCFA).

Nancee Robles worked with the Fireside Bank for over 17 years.

The CPCFA "provides low-cost innovative financing to California businesses, including issuing tax-exempt private activity bonds to qualified waste and recycling projects, and other projects to control pollution and improve water supply," according to Ma's press release.

Currently a resident of Sacramento, Robles worked as a senior credit supervisor and primary underwriting trainer for Fireside Bank for over 17 years, with many of those years spent at the Pleasanton office.

Robles then spent 11 years working for the state, serving as acting executive director of IBank, an agency that "finances public infrastructure and private development to promote jobs, the economy, and the quality of life in California communities," according to the release.

Robles has worked with the CPCFA before, managing the California Capital Access Program, which helps small businesses obtain loans and comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

I remember Fiona Ma, she was close friend with convicted shop lifter Mary Hayashi, mixed socially and dined in the same circles together. I received an email from county supervisor Wilma Chan, she asked me not to connect another democratic candidate with Maty Hayashi.
