Mayor-elect Jorge Elorza has announced his One Providence Steering Committee – a diverse group of 29 community leaders who will lead the work of ten transition committees. The recommendations from the various committees will inform and help guide the policy agenda of the incoming Elorza administration.
“I’m grateful that such an esteemed group of people has volunteered to lead the work of our transition committees,” Mayor-elect Elorza said. “As respected leaders in their fields, this group is widely admired for their service to our community. Their expertise will help channel the tremendous energy and feedback from our One Providence Listening Forums into actionable steps for my administration.”
The Steering Committee will work closely with Elorza Transition Co-Chairs Lisa Ranglin, Victor Capellan, and Sally Lapides to facilitate the work of ten different transition committees (full list below). Under the leadership of the committee co-chairs, community members from across the City will integrate the feedback gathered during the Mayor-elect's four One Providence listening forums and work together to guide the incoming administration's priorities.
Participation on the Transition Committees is open to the public, and the Mayor-elect encourages all who are interested to get involved. To sign up for a committee and find information about the transition, interested parties can visit Mayor-elect Elorza’s transition website, www.transitionPVD.com.
