Lansing Mayor-elect Andy Schor has selected an experienced slate of Lansing leaders to lead his transition team. The team, which is already hard at work, will meet throughout the rest of the year and make policy recommendations to the Mayor-elect on education, economic and business development, neighborhoods and public safety and infrastructure.
“We have a lot of work to do,” Mayor-elect Schor said. “I am grateful to these valued community leaders for dedicating their time and talent to helping ensure a smooth transition for me and my team. I look forward to their recommendations and starting to implement my vision on January 1.”
The transition will be led by former Lansing State Representative and City Council Member Joan Bauer. She will work closely with former Mayor David Hollister who is serving as a Senior Advisor to the transition team.
“We’ve made some great progress in Lansing over the last decade, but I am excited for the change and energy Mayor-elect Schor brings to city hall. We still have a lot of issues to address, and I am honored to help Andy with his transition,” Bauer said.
