Earlier, we reported on the sudden depature of Marian Meagher from her post as the provincial New Democrat operations director. And now we've learned Carole James has found a replacement in the form of her election readiness chair Mary O'Donoghue. Ms. O'Donough, who will be styled as caucus's executive director, worked as the Coalition of Progressive Electors' election day manager during the last Vancouver civic campaign and had previously been theNew Democrat's caucus research director. She was also a director with IdeaWorks Consulting, a management company whose principals included John Horgan and Ian Reid. Mr. Horgan is now the New Democrat's education critic and Mr. Reid is presently the Opposition's policy director.
