Joe Hogsett has created a nonpartisan group to manage his transition efforts in the months before he becomes Indianapolis’ next mayor.
The group, called “One City Indy,” will house the administration’s transition efforts.
“Much like a company or non-profit's executive board, this group will manage committees, advise on policy and help provide input throughout the transition,” said Taylor Schaffer, a Hogsett spokeswoman.
One City Indy will be led by U.S. Rep. Andre Carson, former Lt. Gov. Kathy Davis and Indy Chamber President Michael Huber, along with Thomas Cook, Hogsett’s campaign manager turned transition director.
Hogsett also announced on Friday the groups’ executive committee, which includes representatives from government, the business community, philanthropic groups and the assistant principal of an Indianapolis charter school. It also includes a Republican city-county councilor who lost last week’s election to a Democrat.
The members include:
— City-County Councilors Ben Hunter and Maggie Lewis
— Tory Castor, Indiana University Health
— Rob MacPherson, Central Indiana Community Foundation
— Laurel Judkins, Cummins Inc.
— Ora Pescovitz, Eli Lilly and Co.
— Scott Chinn, Faegre Baker Daniels LLP
— Mary Clark, International Marketplace Coalition
— Edward Rangel, Tindley Genesis Academy
— Former Marion County Judge David Shaheed
The group also named two lawyers who will act as counsels to the group: Barnes & Thornburg LLP’s Jeffrey Mallamad and Drewry Simmons Vornehm LLP’s Andrew Mallon.
