Transition report 2020

The transition report details the transition team’s recommendations to me of what my administration’s goals should be for my first one-hundred days in office, as well as goals in my first term in office.

This report is a culmination of work over the past two months: the Elicker Transition Team gathered public input across New Haven using surveys and hosting two public meetings at High School in the Community ahead of finalizing the report.

The Elicker Transition Team was co-chaired by State Rep. Robyn Porter, Sarah Miller, and Kica Matos who worked with two facilitators, Elizabeth Nearing and Kia Levey. Thank you all for your hard work!
