Banks Announces Congressional Transition Team

Fort Wayne, Ind. — Congressman-elect Jim Banks today announced the members of his congressional transition team, which will assist him as he prepares to take office as the Third Congressional District’s representative in January.

The transition team will be chaired by Casey Cox, who formerly represented District 85 in the Indiana House of Representatives and currently is a lawyer with the Fort Wayne law firm of Beers Mallers Backs & Salin.

Other members of the transition team will include:

  • Jennifer Romano – Columbia City Councilwoman and Whitley County Chamber of Commerce Director
  • Larry Buzzard – Huntington County Commissioner
  • Linda Buskirk – President of Accountable Solutions, Inc. in Fort Wayne
  • Byron Lamm – Local business and community leader, co-founder and president of the board of the Indiana Policy Review Foundation

The five-member transition team will help Banks build his congressional organization and provide input on Third District priorities.

"These talented and experienced leaders will help me with the transition process and offer valuable advice on how to best serve the residents of the Third District," said Banks. "I am grateful for their assistance as I seek to build a congressional operation that effectively represents northeast Indiana in Washington."

Congressman-elect Banks will travel to Washington, D.C. on Nov. 14 to participate in a week-long orientation session for incoming House freshmen.
