The Entertainment Software Association has announced it has appointed Sally Jefferson as its vice president of government affairs. In her new role, Jefferson will be responsible for government relations on video game-related issues, and will manage the ESA's relationships with organizations representing state politicians. Jefferson has served with the ESA in the past, and held roles with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and as a legislative aide on Capitol Hill.
