With just under a month to go till he is sworn into office, Mayor-elect Eric Adams unveiled his transition team on Friday, featuring nearly 800 people across various areas of expertise including public health, food policy, arts and culture, budgeting, civic engagement, education, immigration, climate and infrastructure, housing, criminal justice and more.

The transition team, which continues to grow, is headed by Sheena Wright, CEO and president of United Way of New York City, a nonprofit group that aids low-income New Yorkers. Assisting her in the effort are Katie Moore, who was Adams’ campaign manager and is now executive director of the transition, and Meaghan Brown, who is serving as chief operating officer. There are also nine co-chairs who are leading various committees.

“This unprecedented collection of great minds and hard-working New Yorkers will prepare my administration for success because they represent the many backgrounds and views of our great city, and they are committed to working together toward its bright future,” Adams said in a statement. “Each committee has been tasked with a specific set of goals and responsibilities to ensure we are ready to lead on Day 1. If we are going to tackle the many challenges in front of us as a city, the advocacy, nonprofit and business worlds must all be at the same table, working in collaboration--and that is exactly what this transition is doing. And the transition of this city to a safer, healthier, more prosperous New York will continue after January 1st—so I hope to continue to lean on this group of experts and advocates after I have taken office.”

Aside from the co-chairs, who were announced weeks ago, Adams announced Friday that there are several elected officials serving as senior advisors on the transition. They include U.S. Representative Adriano Espaillat, Assemblymember Rodneyse Bichotte, who chairs the Brooklyn Democratic Party, Assemblymember Jenifer Rajkumar, State Senator Diane Savino and City Council Members Peter Koo and Ydanis Rodriguez, both of whom are rumored to be joining the Adams administration. All of the officials endorsed Adams in the competitive Democratic primary (Espaillat shifted to Adams from Scott Stringer).

The committee in charge of appointments to the Adams administration is being headed by nine members. They include Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.; Andrea Shapiro Davis, interim vice chancellor for university advancement at CUNY; Anthony Crowell, dean and president of New York Law School; Bill Heinzen, general counsel at the New York City Board of Correction; Ama Dwimoh, special counsel and chief compliance and EEO Officer at the Brooklyn borough president’s office under Adams; and others. Menashe Shapiro, who was a top advisor to Adams’ campaign, and Nathan Smith of Red Horse Strategies, who was the campaign’s chief consultant, are advising the appointments as well.

Several communications staffers on Adams' campaign are continuing on in the transition as well. The communications committee is being led by Evan Thies, co-founder of Pythia Public and Adams’ chief campaign spokesperson; Steven Rubenstein, president of Rubenstein, a communications firm; and Carolina Gonzalez, regional communications manager at 32BJ SEIU. Among the members of the committee are several former aides to Mayor Bill de Blasio who are now consultants, including Phil Walzak, Andrea Hagelgans, and Wiley Norvell.

Among the six leads of the “Intergov” committee is City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, who did not make an endorsement in the mayoral race. Johnson is term-limited out of office but does not want a position in the Adams administration, according to City & State.

The Public Safety and Justice committee is being led by three women of color, including Candis Tolliver, vice president and political director of 32BJ SEIU; Karol Mason, president of John Jay College of Criminal Justice; and Erica Bond, vice president of justice initiatives at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, who is also on the Civilian Complaint Review Board. Adams, a former NYPD captain, has pledged to name the city’s first female police commissioner while ushering in a new era of better policing that is both more fair and less racially-biased and also brings down crime.

The ​​‌Arts, Parks and Culture committee is led by Luis Miranda, a prominent political strategist and co-founder of the MirRam Group, and Marcia Sells, who is chief diversity officer at the Metropolitan Opera. Members of the committee include Dennis Walcott, president and CEO of the Queens Public Library; political activist Devorah Halberstam, who chairs the NYPD’s civilian hate crime review panel; venture capitalist Lisa Blau; Melody Capote, executive director of the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute; Mariko Silver, president and CEO of the Henry Luce Foundation; and others.

The committee on budgeting includes among its leaders Latonia McKinney, the longtime director of the New York City Council’s finance division; Preston Niblack, deputy comptroller for the budget under Comptroller Scott Stringer; Martha Stark, former commissioner of the city’s Department of Finance; and others.

The committee on civic engagement is led by Betsy Maclean, co-executive director of Hester Street; Lemuria Alawode-El, vice president of StrengthenNYC at United Way of New York City; Faiza Ali, director of the Community Engagement Division at the City Council; Yanna Henriquez, chief program officer at the Dominico-American Society of Queens; and Richard David, adjunct professor at CUNY.

The Economic and Workforce Development committee has 84 members and is led by five people: Jose Ortiz Jr., CEO of the New York City Employment and Training Coalition; Maria Torres-Springer, vice president for US programs at the Ford Foundation, who previously served as commissioner of the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development; Bertha Lewis, founder of the Black Institute; Seth Pinsky, CEO of the 92nd Street Y, who previously served as an economic development advisor in the Bloomberg administration; and Margaret Anadu, a partner and global head of sustainability and impact at Goldman Sachs.

Adams also has a 62-member clergy committee, led by Pastor Gilford Monrose of Mt. Zion Church of God 7th Day in Brooklyn. Monrose currently serves as director of Faith-based and Clergy Initiatives at Adams’ Brooklyn Borough President office.

Education is one of the largest committees on the transition with 110 members and contributors. Among its leaders are David Banks, founder of Eagle Academy, who is a leading contender for schools chancellor; Saskia Thompson, a program director at the Carnegie Corporation; Hazel Dukes, president of the NAACP New York State Conference; Hector Batista, executive vice chancellor and chief operating officer at CUNY; Lorraine Cortés-Vázquez, commissioner at the city Department for the Aging; and others. The committee also has four youth co-chairs and includes Assemblymembers Alicia Hyndman and Rodneyse Bichotte. 

The Equity committee includes six leaders. Among them are Phil Thompson, de Blasio’s deputy mayor for strategic policy initiatives; and Jennifer Jones Austin, CEO and Executive Director of FPWA, who is also chair of the mayor’s Racial Justice Commission, which is exploring ways to revise the city charter. 

The 64-member Food Policy committee has three heads including Alexina Cather, deputy director of the New York City Food Policy Center; Gregory Silverman, CEO of West Side Campaign Against Hunger; and Tony Hillery, founder and CEO of Harlem Grown.

City Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez and Staten Island Borough President Jimmy Oddo, both of whom are term-limited this year and rumored to be potential appointees to the Adams administration, are among the nine leads of the ‌Infrastructure, Climate and Sustainability committee. Others include Rohit Aggarwala, senior Urban Tech fellow at Cornell Tech; Cas Holloway, currently principal at CFH Solutions and a former deputy mayor under Mayor Bloomberg; Kathryn Mallon, executive director of the Delta Conveyance Design and Construction Authority; and Quemuel Arroyo, chief accessibility officer at the MTA.

Council Member Carlos Menchaca, also term-limited, is helping lead the Immigration committee along with Murad Awawdeh, executive director of the New York Immigration Coalition; Nicole Cata, director of Immigrant Rights Policy at NYIC; and Howard Shih, director of Research and Policy at the Asian American Federation.

Former Council Member David Greenfield, who is CEO of the Met Council, and former Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services Lilliam Barrios-Paoli, are among the seven heads of the Human Services committee.

Former deputy chief administrative Judge George Silver and Richard Zabel, general counsel and chief legal officer of Elliott Management Corporation, are leading the Legal committee.

The Housing committee has ten people leading it including Jessica Katz, executive director of the Citizens Housing & Planning Council; Mathew Wambua, vice chairman of Merchants Capital; Rafael Cestero, president and CEO of the Community Preservation Corporation; Barika Williams, executive director of Association for Neighborhood and Housing Development, and others.

The Health committee has five leads including Ashwin Vasan, president and CEO of Fountain House; Ebone Carrington, managing director of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP; Kathy Martin, chief operating officer at Memorial Sloan Kettering; endocrinologist Dr. George Liu, and Dr. Ramon Tallaj, chair of the board of SOMOS Community Care.

Three people are in charge of the Technology committee including Andrew Rasiej, founder and CEO of Civic Hall, a civic tech group; Julie Samuels, founder and executive director of Tech:NYC; and Rhonda Binda, who is currently deputy borough president under Queens Borough President Donovan Richards and is stepping down in the coming weeks.
