Governor-elect Arnold Schwarzenegger introduced the key members of his transition team today, saying the first thing they would do is audit the stateâ€™s books to find out just how serious the stateâ€™s deficit is.
He also called on Governor Gray Davis not to make any more appointments or sign legislation in the waning days of his administration. But Schwarzenegger acknowledged Davis has the right to do so. Schwarzenegger will take office as soon as the results of Tuesdayâ€™s recall election are certified.
He also introduced Republican Congressman David Dreier, who is heading his transition team. The two said they hoped to select a broad range of people, including Democrats and Republicans to help them. The first name they announced was that of their teamâ€™s finance director, Donna Arduin, who most recently was budget director for Florida.
