CAR­SON CITY — At­tor­ney Gen­eral-elect Aaron Ford on Wed­nes­day an­nounced the 19-per­son team, led by two of Ne­vada’s past three Demo­cratic at­tor­neys gen­eral, that will over­see his tran­si­tion into of­fice.

For­mer U.S. Sen. and Gov. Richard Bryan and for­mer At­tor­ney Gen­eral Frankie Sue Del Papa were named as the tran­si­tion team’s cochairs.

Bryan served four years as at­tor­ney gen­eral be­fore be­ing elected se­na­tor. Del Papa held the of­fice from 1991 to 2003.

“Hav­ing pre­vi­ously served Ne­vada as At­tor­neys Gen­eral, we look for­ward to be­ing a part of the fu­ture of the of­fice,” Bryan and Del Papa said in a joint state­ment. “We know Aaron Ford will do an ex­cel­lent job serv­ing Ne­vada fam­i­lies as At­tor­ney Gen­eral, and we are pleased to help guide him dur­ing this tran­si­tion pe­riod.”

For­mer Demo­cratic As­sem­bly Speaker Bar­bara Buck­ley, who is co-chair­ing the tran­si­tion team for Gov.-elect Steve Siso­lak, also is part of Ford’s tran­si­tion team. Ford, who was elected to state Se­nate Dis­trict 11 in 2012, de­feated Wes Dun­can on Nov. 6 to re­place Adam Lax­alt as at­tor­ney gen­eral, a Repub­li­can who lost his bid for gov­er­nor.
