Gov.-elect Tom Corbett has announced his top transition officials.
The transition chief of staff will be Brian Nutt, Corbett’s chief of staff as attorney general. Kevin Harley, Corbett’s AG spokesman, will be transition spokesman.
Leslie Gromis-Baker, who acted as a top advisor to Corbett during the campaign, will act as co-director of the transition, along with Tom Paese, a lobbyist with the law firm of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney.
The counsel to the transition is Charles Kopp, a Philadelphia attorney and major Republican fundraiser. During the announcement of his transition team, Corbett also said that he disagreed with Governor Rendell’s moratorium on leasing state land for natural gas exploration and drilling.
