Governor-elect Scott Walker says he’s receiving plenty of offers for help in setting up the transition for his administration into the Governor’s office. The Republican says there’s a lot of excitement right now from people with a wide variety of experience, both in and out of government, who are very interested in helping him.
Walker says he plans to announce his transition team in the coming days, while members of his Cabinet will be chosen before the end of the year. He wants to be very deliberative in the process, saying it pays to take time in picking the right team to head his administration.
As for the transition from life in Milwaukee County to Madison, Walker says he is planning a move to the Executive Residence. With two kids in high school right now, he admits it could take some time to sort things out. However, he says the Capitol is in Madison and he understands that he needs to be here to serve as governor for all the people of the state.
