Louisiana Bobby Jindal Announces New Transition Advisory Heads October 30, 2007 Today, Governor-Elect Bobby Jindal announced that Dennis Stine of Lake Charles will serve as chair of the Government and Fiscal Reform Transition Advisory Council, and Jim Brandt of Baton Rouge will serve as vice chair. The Government and Fiscal Reform Transition Advisory Council will review candidates interested in serving as the Secretary of Revenue within the administration and make recommendations to Jindal on the appointment. Jindal first announced his Ethics Advisory Council head last week, naming Sean Reilly of Lamar Advertising to that post. As chair of the Government and Fiscal Reform Transition Advisory Council, Stine will lead transition efforts with the current Commissioner of Administration Jerry Luke LeBlanc to ensure the incoming administration is ready to hit the ground running with work on a new state budget, and also head up the search for a new Commissioner of Administration to serve under Jindal. Stine is president of Stine Lumber Company. He previously served as the Commissioner of Administration from 1988 to 1992, and has also served two terms in the Louisiana House of Representatives. He is a former member of the Louisiana Health Care Authority and a former Port Director for the Port of Lake Charles. Stine has a bachelor’s of science in accounting, an MBA from McNeese State University and is a graduate of the John F. Kennedy School of Government’s Senior Executive Program at Harvard University. Brandt is president of the Public Affairs Research Council (PAR) and has more than thirty years of experience in government administration, public policy research, and nonprofit management. Brandt served as president and CEO of the Bureau of Governmental Research in New Orleans for 12 years, and formerly served as Assistant Director and Senior Associate of the Institute for Governmental Studies at Loyola University. Brandt has a bachelor’s of arts in history and political science from the University of Colorado and a master’s degree in community organization and planning from Tulane University. The Government and Fiscal Reform Advisory Council is one of nine transition advisory councils Jindal announced last Friday. Seven transition advisory councils, including ethics, economic growth, education, health and social services, hurricane recovery and emergency preparedness, government and fiscal reform, and crime and public safety are all reflective the seven policy chapters Jindal unveiled during his campaign. There are also two special councils to examine issues pertaining to Veterans Affairs and Wildlife and Fisheries. All advisory council members will travel the state to collect testimony and advise the leadership on qualified candidates interested in roles within the administration.
