Nader Says UC Regents Should Be Publicly Elected:

"Consumer leader Ralph Nader says the University of California Board of Regents should be elected, rather than appointed by the governor, and called on supporters of the idea to put a constitutional initiative on the ballot.

"'Right now the regents are a closed-door, self-perpetuating clique almost totally immune from public scrutiny and public opinion,' Nader said earlier this week during a visit to San Francisco.

'This is an autocracy governing a tax-supported university.'"
