The San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce has hired Jaymie Bradford to be its vice president of public policy and economic research. Bradford previously was deputy chief of staff and policy for Mayor Kevin Faulconer.

Bradford will oversee the day-to-day operations in the public policy department and economic research efforts. She will manage policy positions and agendas for the Chamber’s policy committees, review the organization’s positions at the local, state and federal levels and set the legislative agenda in Washington, D.C. and in Sacramento.

In her prior role, Bradford managed city policy experts who dealt with issues in land use, the environment, economic development, water infrastructure and budget. She also had federal and binational affairs staff on her policy team, according to a release from the Chamber.

Before her time in the mayor’s office, Bradford worked for Interim Mayor Todd Gloria. She also served as director of intergovernmental relations during Jerry Sanders’s tenure as mayor of San Diego.
