Senator Named to Christie Transition Team

Senator Cunningham

Senator Cunningham

Senator Cunningham was chosen today by governor-elect Chris Christie to be a part of his transition team in Trenton. The team, which includes public and private sector leaders from both parties, will be responsible for assembling Christie’s new administration, sifting through mounds of information from the outgoing governor, and giving voice to key constituencies across the state. It will also provide guidance to Mr. Christie on a number of major policy issues. In selecting the Senator, Christie “underscored the bipartisan signals he has labored to send in the days since defeating Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine.”

The transition team will be headed by former Attorney General David Samson. The other members include: Susan Cole, president of Montclair State Univesrity; Debra DiLorenzo, president and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce of Southern New Jersey; Michael DuHaime, managing director of Mercury Public Affairs; Attorney George Gilmore, a partner at Gilmore & Monahan; Jon Hanson, chairman and founder of Hampshire Real Estate Companies; Alfred Koeppe, executive director of the Newark Alliance; Sen. Joseph Kyrillos, R-13th of Middletown; and Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac, the former state treasurer.

The transition team will meet for the first time today. “What I’ve been trying to do over the last eight days – besides catch up on some sleep – is to make sure that I get some very, very good people around me,” Christie told reporters.
