From the Morning Memo:

Melinda Katz on Friday is set to unveil her 31-member transition team as she is set to become the new Queens district attorney in January.

Katz has named Randall Eng, the former presiding justice of the Appellate Division, Second Department to serve as co-chairman of the effort. Christopher Renfroe, a former president of the Macon B. Allen Black Bar Association, will serve as co-chair as well.

Sharon Lee has been appointed the transition team’s executive director, serving on a volunteer basis.

The committee will create smaller working groups to focus on divisions and bureaus within the DA’s office ahead of the change in administration.

“I am proud and ready to lead a new dawn of justice in Queens,” Katz said in a statement.

“I am grateful to the co-chairs and the members of my transition team for their dedication to the people and families of our home borough. Justice has been denied as other counties in our state and across the country were at the forefront of reforming our criminal justice system. We will prove definitively in Queens that you can enhance safety and equality at the same time, in a way that is collaborative and benefits all of us.”

Katz won a closely watched and hard-fought Democratic primary against Tiffany Cabán, a former public defender who had the backing of progressive organizations and advocates.

The full list of the transition committee is after the jump.
