(NECN) - Boston mayor-elect Marty Walsh is expanding his transition team as he prepares to take office.

Walsh has named three more co-chairs to his transition committee, in addition to adding nearly two-dozen civic and community leaders to advise him on a wide range of issues.

These issues include economic development, transportation, and public safety.

The new co-chairs include Dr. James Mandell, a pediatric surgeon and former chief executive of Boston Children's Hospital; Paul Watanabe, chairman of political science at UMass Boston; and Beth Williams, chief executive of Roxbury Technology Corporation.
