Indianapolis Mayor-elect Joe Hogsett is expected to name his transition chief and campaign manager Thomas Cook as his Chief of Staff.

Cook also worked for Hogsett when he was U.S. Attorney and is a former spokesman for the Indiana Democratic Party.

He also has a law degree from Indiana University.

Hogsett has already made several appointments including former Greg Ballard Public Safety Director Troy Riggs as Police Chief and former Warren Township Trustee Jeff Bennett as Deputy Mayor of Community Outreach.
