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.
