Former HHS Secretary Tom Price joins Georgia governor-elect’s transition team

Tom Price, the former HHS secretary who left the job last year after his controversial use of private jets for official travel, has joined the transition team of Republican Georgia Governor-elect Brian Kemp, The Hill reported.

Price was accused of misusing hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars as a result of his travel habits.

According to Kemp, Price will help with policy planning.

“Obviously he's got a lot of great experience with health care,” Kemp told The Hill. “No one is more experienced with legislative matters than Tom Price and certainly his time in D.C. as well, so he's a valuable member of our team, but we're going to continue to work with a lot of different people on healthcare.”
