Christie announces transition team

The Governor elect announced his ten member transition team earlier today:

Former Attorney General David Samson had previously been designated as chairman of the transition panel.

The transition team includes: State Sens. Joseph Kyrillos (R-Middletown) and Sandra Bolden Cunningham (D-Jersey City),  Ocean County GOP Chairman George Gilmore, Christie campaign strategist Michael DuHaime, Woodbridge Mayor and former State Treasurer John McCormac, Montclair State University President Susan Cole, Southern New Jersey Chamber of Commerce President Debra DiLorenzo, former New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority Chairman Jon Hanson, and former PSE&G President Alfred Koeppe,

Here’s the News12 NJ story:

But apparently they don’t really have any funding for the transition yet:

Christie also said he talked with Corzine about providing money from a discretionary fund for the gubernatorial transition after it was discovered that the Legislature had not appropriated any money for that purpose in the current budget.

The News 12 story says that Christie and Corzine are scheduled to meet tomorrow.

    So, he went straight to a political boss. This is going to end well…

    Sandra Cunningham is probably the most dimwitted person to have ever served in the state Senate. There’s nothing going on upstairs. Zip. Nada.

    People won’t say it, but everybody knows it.

    Star Ledger reported yesterday that Jon Hanson, chairman and founder of the Hampshire Real Estate Companies was on the team.

    Was that an error?

    He put a end to a loophole Corzine left open ,by baning big contributions  to fund-raising for the inaugural celebration. Which meant that means that companies seeking favor from the new administration would have a chance to slip them a friendly check . CC closed that loophole , Contractors can’t give more than $300. which puts a end to pay to play there …’s a start
