CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel has his transition team.

Emanuel on Thursday named seven people to be his transition co-chairs. They will lead a review of city government and prepare for his new administration.

The team includes Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry head David Mosena, former Mayor Richard Daley aide Sarah Pang and former state Rep. Judy Erwin.

Emanuel also chose a former police officer who now works at a college and a financial professional. He also picked a person with non-profit experience, South Side pastor the Rev. Byron Brazier.

Emanuel is moving ahead just two days after trouncing five rivals by getting 55 percent of the vote in Tuesday's election.
