"We're casting a net that will reach far and wide as we seek the most qualified candidates possible," said Jim Lyons, executive director of Ritter's transition team. "We have a rare opportunity to fulfill the Colorado Promise. We are hopeful that all of our applicants and ultimately the Cabinet will reflect the tremendous diversity of this great state. We want to ensure that everyone who is interested in being considered has a chance to do so."
The 18 Transition Advisory Committees that are reviewing applications for Cabinet and director positions began their work on Monday. They are expected to finish by Dec. 15. Their final reports will include a short list of candidates for consideration byLyons, transition co-chairs Norma Anderson and Daniel Yohannes, and Gov.-elect Ritter.
