Gov.-Elect McAuliffe Announces Bipartisan "Common Ground for Virginia” Transition Committee

 

Governor-elect Terry McAuliffe announced his "Common Ground for Virginia" Transition Committee today, a bipartisan group of Virginians from all regions of the Commonwealth who will work with McAuliffe over the next two months to build the foundation for a successful administration.

"I am honored to work with this bipartisan group of leaders representing a variety of backgrounds, political persuasions, and regions across the Commonwealth to build a strong and diverse administration that will help me bring Virginians together to grow our economy," said Governor-elect McAuliffe.

"The challenges we face require leaders who will put old battles aside and find common ground to move us forward together. I have no doubt that this transition committee will help me build an administration that is ready to hit the ground running on the issues that matter most to Virginia families."
