Gov.-elect Ned Lamont names diverse group, including Republicans, to transition panel

Gov.-elect Ned Lamont, a Hartford outsider who has never held statewide office, is relying on a diverse group of transition advisers, including labor leaders, Democratic politicians and New Britain's Republican mayor.
