HARRISBURG -- Gov.-elect Tom Corbett on Tuesday will address members of his transition committees, which are meeting for the first time to help shape the direction of his administration and recommend key staffers.
“The transition committees are made up of business leaders, former Ridge officials, ex-legislators, lobbyists and apparently one Democratic lawmaker -- Sen. Anthony Williams of Philadelphia, according to the memo distribution list. Williams is expected to play a key role in the General Assembly on Corbett's plan to implement tuition vouchers for school choice. He was an unsuccessful Democratic candidate for governor, who heightened awareness of school choice through TV ads.
Also invited were former PennDOT Secretary Brad Mallory, who served as a member of Ridge's Cabinet, University of Pittsburgh Chancellor Mark Nordenberg, former Allegheny County Executive Jim Roddey, former Rep. Paul Clymer of Bucks County, former Sen. Joe Uliana, a lobbyist, and Matthew Brouillette, president of the Commonwealth Foundation.”
