Maura Healey is getting help from several leaders on the SouthCoast as she prepares her transition from attorney general to governor.
On Monday, Healey and Lt. Gov.-elect Kim Driscoll announced the full makeup of six “transition policy committees” that will be tasked with translating their campaign platform into governing policies.
The committees, each of which have about two dozen members, include four people with major ties to the SouthCoast.
Thomas Anderson, who has served as superintendent of New Bedford Public Schools since 2018, has been tapped to be a member or the “thriving youth and young adults” committee.
According to a release from Healey, they will be tasked with mapping out how the incoming governor’s administration should “address learning loss from the pandemic and give all children and families equitable access to the educational, social, emotional and behavioral supports they need.”
