Baker, Richardson selected to serve on transition team

Two Letcher County women are among 204 people named last week to be on the transition team of incoming Gov. Steve Beshear.

Lois A. Baker of Whitesburg, retired CEO of Mountain Comprehensive Health Corporation, was selected to serve on the Justice Cabinet Transition Team headed by Lt. Gov. Steve Pence of Louisville.

Josephine Richardson of Whitesburg, co-owner of the Courthouse Cafe, was picked to serve on the Environmental & Public Protection Team headed by former state Rep. Steve Nunn of Glasgow.

The two teams on which Baker and Richardson will serve are among 10 transition teams whose leaders were announced two weeks ago. All members of the teams, which will be in charge of helping select applicants for the top appointed positions in state government, are volunteers.
