News of the Day November 13, 2018
Governor-elect Tony Evers Announces Transition Team

Democratic Gov.-elect Tony Evers has tapped his first key staffers to oversee his transition into the governor’s office.

JoAnne Anton, who has worked in various roles for former Democratic U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl, will lead Evers’ transition team, the Evers campaign announced Monday.

Maggie Gau, who managed Evers’ campaign for governor, will be his chief of staff.

Exact Sciences CEO Kevin Conroy is one of the five other members of Evers’ transition team, according to a news release.

The rest are:

  • Chuck Pruitt, co-managing director of ABD Direct, a Milwaukee fundraising-services firm, and former president of the Board of Regents.
  • Amy Traynor, an Eau Claire middle school teacher and 2013 Wisconsin Middle School Teacher of the Year.
  • Jan Allman, Marinette Marine CEO.
  • Veronica Gunn, CEO of Genesis Health Consulting.

Also Monday, Evers made his first official communication with state lawmakers: a request to the Legislature’s budget-writing committee for funds for his transition team. Evers requested $94,600 to fund his transition, according to the request.

Evers also made clear Monday that he plans to continue serving as state superintendent of public instruction until he’s sworn in as governor, at which point he would step down as superintendent. The Evers campaign did not immediately respond to an inquiry about how a successor would be named.
