PHL-15: Kenney Unveils Transition Team

James-KenneyPhiladelphia Mayor-Elect Jim Kenney is not one to rest on his laurels.

Two days after winning the election, and a day after launching his transition website, Kenney has announced the names of the 163 people who will help him move back into City Hall after spending 13 years as a City Council member.

For comparison, Gov. Tom Wolf’s transition team had just seven people.

Kenney’s transition team features 11 subcommittees, led by an eight-person Steering Committee. State Rep. Dwight Evans and former Human Services Commissioner Alba Martinez will serve as co-chairs of the transition team, with Jessie Bradley lined up as transition director:

Prominent Philadelphians on Kenney’s transition team include: Philadelphia NOW President Nina Ahmad, Philly AFL-CIO President Pat Eiding, South Philadelphia High School Principal Otis Hackney, Temple Law School Dean Joanne Epps and civil rights attorney David Rudovsky.
