Congressman Tom Reed, a vice chair of the Trump transition team, denies that the selections run counter to Trump's campaign narrative to upend the political system.

Chautauqua County's representative in Congress has been selected to be a vice chair for president-elect Donald Trump's transition team.

Fallin, a Republican who was in contention to serve as Trump's vice president, has been the governor of Oklahoma since 2011.

"We care about the future of our country and recognize that this is a massive undertaking at a pivotal moment in our history", Reed said. "This opportunity is both honoring and humbling and is a chance to make our country stronger and more prosperous".

Although the election caused a divide among the American people and tension is still high, Reed said he believes once the President-elect starts sharing successes it will "empower the American people and give them a fresh outlook". "We are glad to serve alongside those on the team and look forward to getting to work".

"It's very exciting", Brown said of the appointment.

"This is the first time in over eight years that we have had a direct line of communication with the White House", Reed said Thursday in a conference call with reporters. Tim Scott of SC and Kathleen Troia "K.T". Lou Barletta and Tom Marino, R-Pa.

Other newly appointed Trump transition co-chairs are Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn.; Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin; Rep. Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyoming; Kathleen Troia McFarland; Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Washington; and U.S. Sen.
