Bryant transition team works on 2012 agenda

JACKSON, Miss. — Mississippi’s governor-elect is holding a policy meeting Thursday to help develop his 2012 legislative agenda.

Republican Phil Bryant was elected Nov. 8 and takes office at noon Jan. 10.

He recently appointed several people, including some prominent Republicans, to handle issues as part of his transition team.

The policy meeting Thursday is being held at the Marriott hotel in downtown Jackson. It’s led by transition team member Mark Garriga, an attorney who was chief of staff for Republican Gov. Kirk Fordice during the 1990s.
