Brighton- Governor-elect Charlie Baker today announced members of the transition committees on Jobs, Schools, Communities, Health and Better Government. Lieutenant Governor-elect Karyn Polito is chairing the transition team and will be holding committee meetings this week and next.

"We sought out leaders from across the commonwealth with experience in fields vital to the success of Massachusetts and I look forward to working further with the committees as we prepare to take office next month," said Lieutenant Governor-elect Karyn Polito. "For several weeks now Governor-elect Baker and I have worked hard to assemble a great team from diverse backgrounds and I am excited to continue working with them as the transition process continues.
