Moore said they’re already seeing how seriously the Hogan administration is taking the transition.
Moore announced that Lt. Gov.-elect Aruna Miller would lead his transition team.
Last month, Hogan named Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford to oversee the transition and serve as chief liaison to the incoming administration.
