Former State Rep. Joan Bauer will head Lansing Mayor-elect Andy Schor’s transition team, with an assist from former Mayor David Hollister, who will serve as the team’s senior adviser.

Bauer, who represented the 68th District for six years until she was term limited in 2012, is a former Lansing City Councilwoman. Schor replaced her in the Legislature. Both are Democrats.

Bauer will oversee four committees: —Economic and Business Development, headed by Greg Ward, Consumer Energy’s manager of inclusion and employee experience.

—Education, led by Lansing Schools Supt. Yvonne Camuul Canul.

—Infrastructure, co-led by Brian Jeffries, an attorney and a former City Councilman, and Dusty Fancher, a former Lansing Parks Board member.

—Neighborhoods and Public Safety, co-chaired by Rina Risper, owner of the New Citizens Press, and former Lansing Police Chief Mark Alley.
