Return of the Jedi

Some of you on the 6th Floor might have had a flashback if you happened to run into former First Assistant District Attorney Bert Graham or attorney Dick Bax today.

Both men have been asked by District Attorney-elect Mike Anderson to come in to be a part of the transition team as he prepares to take office on January 1, 2013.

District Attorney Pat Lykos has followed in the footsteps of former interim District Attorney Ken Magidson by allowing the incoming District Attorney's transition team to begin work on the Monday after Thanksgiving.

It was a decent and classy move by Lykos.  Yeah, I said that in print.

Allowing Judge Anderson's transition team to come in early will help eliminate any confusion that could potentially take place on January 1st.  She didn't have to do that, so kudos to her for allowing it.

I'm sure that the next few weeks will be filled with rumor and gossip as names are dropped for who will be doing what under the new administration. That's natural, and, in some ways, kind of exciting.  I look forward to hearing who Judge Anderson will choose for his Leadership Team.

Graham & Bax were at show n tell today. Lykos looked like she wanted to puke.

My understanding is that Lykos wasn't even in Show & Tell on Tuesday morning.

It will be interesting to see whether or not she shows up for any of the remaining ones under her tenure.

Be interesting to see if she fires some of the newly sworn in members of the Transistion Team before the end of December...
