11/11/2015 02:50 PM

Gov.-elect Matt Bevin’s transition team unveiled a website on Wednesday for those interested in applying for any of the hundreds of non-merit positions that will be available in his administration.

The site, www.bevintransition.com, features an application process for candidates “who share (Bevin’s) conservative values, his unwavering commitment to the best interests of the people, and his willingness to work long hard hours to fulfill public responsibilities.”

The website will fall under the purview of volunteers on Bevin’s non-merit Personnel Advisory Committee until the incoming governor’s Dec. 8 inauguration, according to a news release announcing the webpage.

“This new administration is offering a fresh start for Kentucky,” Mac Brown, chairman of Bevin’s transition team and newly selected chairman of the Republican Party of Kentucky, said in a statement. “We are looking for highly qualified individuals willing to do the hard work needed to bring positive change to Kentucky.”

“Governor-Elect Bevin has set forward three criteria to look for in candidates – character, competence and commitment to the Commonwealth,” he continued. “We hope people across the Commonwealth will express interest.”

The website also includes a function to request appearances by Bevin and Lt. Gov.-elect Jenean Hampton and will feature forms for applications to board and commission appointments, according to the release.
