Joe Ganim is finalizing an inner circle of appointments that will walk into City Hall with him on Tuesday morning. Others will be appointed over the course of the next several weeks after he gets his arms around status of the city budget he’s inheriting from outgoing Mayor Bill Finch and other issues. Meanwhile, the transition between Finch to Ganim is a little scratchy.
Ganim says “There’s a limited amount of information coming out of City Hall at this point, so that has slowed down some of the anticipated preparation.” CT Post scribe Brian Lockhart has more:
Finch spokesman Brett Broesder said, “We’re doing our part to ensure there is as smooth of a transition as possible.”
Broesder said transition memoranda with detailed information on key projects and other responsibilities are being drafted by virtually every department.
Broesder added, “Since communication is a two-way street, we’re looking forward to getting more information about what to expect from the next administration after the mayor-elect is sworn into office, including concrete information on the future employment status of nonunion city staffers.”
