Mayor-elect Greg Fischer will announce his transition team Wednesday morning.
Fischer’s transition began last Wednesday when he met with Mayor Jerry Abramson. There are funds in the city budget to pay for the transition team and other expenses through inauguration day on January 3rd.
Fischer’s spokesperson says the transition staff will have 40 people on it, including business and civic leaders from across the city. For the rest of the month, the team will be led by Fischer’s campaign manager Chris Bizzacco. Bizzacco will step down on the 30th and return to his home in New England. A Fischer spokesperson says a new transition leader will be chosen later, though the mayor-elect has several candidates in mind.
