LANCASTER, KY – On Friday, Kentucky Treasurer-elect Mark Metcalf announced State Representative Josh Bray and Caroline Cash will serve as Chairs of his transition team. Elected in 2020, Representative Bray co-chairs the General Assembly’s Jail & Corrections Reform Task Force and is the Vice-Chair of the House’s Local Government Committee. He also serves on the Banking & Insurance, Health Services, Judiciary, and the Appropriations & Revenue Committees.
Caroline Cash, a Graves County native, has served as U.S. Congressman James Comer’s Chief of Staff since 2016.
“Rep. Josh Bray has become a strong voice in the General Assembly and has proven he understands the importance of small and smart government. Ms. Cash’s leadership in DC has been vital as Kentucky’s James Comer works to provide needed oversight over the Biden administration. Both are trusted friends and respected leaders. I am grateful they have agreed to help lead our transition efforts as we prepare to get to work for the people of Kentucky,” said Treasurer-elect Metcalf.
Over the coming weeks, Representative Bray and Ms. Cash will be focused on ensuring a smooth and effective transition. Both share Metcalf’s vision of the Treasurer’s office doing more with less, protecting pensions, advocating for taxpayers, and faithfully serving the people of the Commonwealth.
“Mark Metcalf has one of the most impressive records of service in Kentucky politics. His extensive career as a Kentucky prosecutor, a Justice Department appointee of President George W. Bush, and as a Soldier in the Kentucky Army National Guard and the United States Army signal an exciting new chapter in the State Treasurer’s office. I am honored he has asked me to help him as he prepares to lead this statewide office,” said Representative Bray.
“Congressman Comer appreciates Mark’s leadership and service to Kentucky. I am pleased to have the chance to assist Mark as he brings this next chapter of service to the Commonwealth,” said Cash.
A transition website will be live soon which will allow individuals interested in employment in the Treasurer's office to submit inquiries.
