There's news about Governor-elect Eliot Spitzer's transition team (which includes El Diario publisher Rosanna Rosado and Time Warner Chairman and CEO Richard Parsons), but you can also visit the spiffy transition website. TransitionNY.org has some bios for Spitzer, Lieutenant Governor David Paterson, the transition team, and links to the state's various agencies. Okay, it's sort of thin on information now, as it's most notably an open call for people to apply for state jobs, but it's a nice idea - let's hope it's a usable resource.

Spitzer met with Mayor Bloomberg yesterday for breakfast and the media, where they exchanged pleasantries. Bloomberg said, "We won't agree on everything. We will agree on most things," while Spitzer emphasized that his landslide victory shows that the voters want reform in Albany.
