Upon election, Mayor Andy Schor selected an experienced slate of Lansing leaders to lead the transition team. The team put together a report including policy recommendations to the Mayor on education, economic and business development, neighborhoods and public safety, and infrastructure.
The transition was led by former Lansing State Representative and City Council Member Joan Bauer. She worked closely with former Mayor David Hollister who served as a Senior Advisor to the transition team.
