BOSTON – Following a historic victory as the first Black woman elected Attorney General and the first woman of color and Black woman elected statewide in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Attorney General-Elect Andrea J. Campbell and her team have spent the past several weeks working hard on her transition to the Attorney General’s office. 

Today, Campbell announced the chairs and members of her Transition Team. AG-Elect Campbell has named Brent Henry, Mary Strother, Ralph Martin, and Stephanie Lovell as her Transition Co-Chairs. Will Stockton, who served as Campbell’s Campaign Manager, will serve as Transition Director. 

“I am honored to have the support of this incredible transition committee as we move to the next phase of our work to create a more just, more fair Commonwealth while fighting to protect the rights, health and well-being of all our residents. We have brought together a diverse group of lawyers, youth, subject matter experts, and business, non-profit and community leaders to review the work of the office while identifying the north stars for every bureau,” said Attorney General-Elect Andrea Campbell.

Campbell’s Transition Committee will include a Hiring Committee and a ‘Ready on Day One’ Committee, composed of five sub-committee teams focused on the work of the following AGO bureaus: Health Care and Fair Competition Bureau, Public Protection and Advocacy Bureau, Government Bureau, Energy and Environment Bureau, and Criminal Bureau. A full list of members can be found below. 

The Hiring Committee is responsible for identifying job openings within the Office of the Attorney General and conducting a transparent, inclusive hiring process with the goal of building a diverse team with lawyers and staff from all parts of the Commonwealth. Campbell’s campaign has always been intentional about being inclusive and the same remains true for the Transition Committee and AG-Elect Campbell’s work ahead.

Earlier this month, Campbell released an interest form on her website for members of the public who would like to join her office.

The ‘Ready on Day One Committee’ is responsible for preparing AG-Elect Campbell on key issues for when Campbell takes office. This Committee will prepare subject matter briefs on priority issues, engage with and listen to outside organizations, and assist with logistical needs relating to the transition of their relevant bureau, and brainstorm the future possibilities and north stars of each bureau. 

Additionally, AG-Elect Campbell announced an Inaugural Committee to plan her historic inauguration on January, 18, 2023. The committee will be led by Inaugural Director Maggie Di Pesa, who served as Campbell’s Finance Director on the campaign, and Inaugural Co-Chairs: Betsy Patullo, Sherry Riva, and Deb Enos, who previously served as the Co-Chairs of Campbell’s campaign.
