Last week, Public Eye reported outgoing Speaker Claude Richmond summarily exited legislative comptroller Peter Bray from his position as the precinct's principle financial watchdog. And now it seems the clerk's office has found an interim replacement. Everyone give a big welcome to the not-so-talkative Bill Gano, who started work today.
In an interview with Public Eye, Mr. Gano said, he'd "prefer not" to talk about his background. Asked when he was hired, the comptroller replied "I'm not going to comment on such things." And how long does he plan on sticking around for? "Nope, we're not going to have this conversation," stated Mr. Gano - who is already differentiating himself from his media-accessible predecessor. He wouldn't even tell us who hired him.
But don't worry Mr. Gano. Thanks to miracles of modern technology we've been able to find out you used to work at the Alberta legislature as the director of administrative and information services. If anyone else has more information, Public Eye and our readers would be much oblidged.
