A lot of work goes on behind the scenes between Election Day and the inauguration of a new governor. Much of it is done by the governor-elect's transition team.
Liz Bankowski has been on the transition teams for Madeleine Kunin, Peter Shumlin and President Bill Clinton. She says the the team must share the incoming governor's political goals and aspirations. Bankowski says the key priorities of the team are to hire a leadership team, shape the budget, turn the governor's campaign promises into policy and oversee inaugural activities.
