NEW ORLEANS – Governor-Elect John Bel Edwards announced the key players that will oversee the transition from Bobby Jindal's administration.

Edward’s campaign said La. State Senator Ben Nevers will serve as the Governor’s Chief of Staff and will also oversee the transition.

“I have known Ben Nevers for years, and he has been great to work with in the legislature,” Edwards said Sunday. “I’m proud to have him leading the effort to make our government more responsive to the needs of the people and deliver on the commitments that I made in this campaign.”

Edwards also announced the six co-chairs for his transition team. The list includes Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo, Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newel Normand, LSU Foundation Director Laura Leach, Sen. Sharon Weston Broome, Taylor Townsend and Richard Lipsey.
