Trenton Mayor-elect Reed Gusciora has named Jeannine LaRue, Elvin Montero and Anne LaBate as co-chairs of this transition, team, with Ali Wilson serving as executive director.
“I’m very excited that the chairs accepted my invitation to serve as the initial transition committee. In the coming week, specific committees and their membership will also be announced regarding each of the departments in City Hall,” said Gusciora, who takes office on Sunday. “It is hoped that the transition committees will set the stage for the incoming Administration and help lay the foundation for the next four years.”

Jon Corzine, as commissioner of the New Jersey Casino Control Commission, and vice president of public affairs at Rutgers University, and as the chief lobbyist for the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA).

“The transition team will engage in community dialogues in order to receive public input and suggestions for City Hall,” said Gusciora, who promised a diverse and inclusive administration.
