Former Twin Falls Man Chosen For Transition Team
U.S. Senator -Elect Jim Risch has named two familiar confidantes to his congressional transition team.
The republican said John Sandy, a former twin falls-area state senator who was chairman of the Idaho Republican party until 2004, will head the transition.
Sandy was Risch's chief of staff during his 2006 stint as governor.
Ryan White, who headed Risch's campaign against democrat Larry Larocco, will be Risch's legislative director in Washington, D.C.
