NEW YORK - Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio is already hitting the ground running, announcing what he calls his transition team.

The public advocate held his first news conference in Manhattan to introduce New Yorkers to four key people in his new administration, including Jennifer Jones-Austin, who has previously worked under Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

De Blasio also announced the launch of a new website called Transition2013.com, which offers more information about the mayor-elect and his goals for the future, and even lists job openings within his administration.

The Democrat beat former MTA Chairman Joe Lhota with about 73 percent of voter support. His first official day on the job is Jan. 1, more than 50 days away.
