My plan includes a smooth transistion

When a new president is sworn in, he has a transition team that has been working behind the scenes; they continue for some time to ensure that the transition is orderly. I have chosen to take that same route.

My team is already working diligently to establish an orderly process for this changeover.

Part of that plan includes the following:

I have asked current Undersheriff Dan Mattos, and he has agreed to stay on for one to three months to work alongside your new Undersheriff.

Although I am the one to establish policy and direction, Dan’s knowledge and experience with the department will be crucial to ensure an orderly transition.

I am grateful for his willingness to assist.
