Destination unknown

Yesterday, we broke the news that caucus executive director Jeff Bray had abruptly resigned. When asked about the reason for that resignation, caucus chair John Yap said "As you know, this is a personnel matter. And we really don't discuss details of that nature. What I can say is that Jeff tendered his resignation to seek other employment opportunities." But this was quite a sudden decision, wasn't it? "Well, this type of thing does happen. We've had other instances where staff seek other opportunities. There's a strong job market right now in Victoria. So it's not unusual for staff to seek other opportunities."

Mr. Yap declined to provide further details about the resignation. When asked whether Mr. Bray had any employment opportunities lined up, the caucus chair said, "You'll have to ask Jeff. That's a good question. I couldn't say." And do you have any contact information for the former caucus executive director? "As you can expect, we probably have his phone number. But I wouldn't be at liberty to give it."

Good story Sean. Perhaps Jeff Bray will let you know what his new opportunity is?

People enter and exit politics on a pretty routine basis. Nobody is getting rich on his salary living in Victoria.

Jeff is a good guy with a young family and politics takes a ton of time, even in non-elected positions.

I wish him well and hope they find someone of his calibre to take his place.

Bill says, "Jeff is a good guy with a young family and politics takes a ton of time, even in non-elected positions... I wish him well and hope they find someone of his calibre to take his place."

I have no idea about him personally nor what "calibre" he is or is not - although he was my MLA and i met him several times. I have no partisan opinion of the guy.

He is moving on and good luck to him... politicians should be free to move on without all the partisan ranker following them forever... unless your name is steve harper and you are for destorying the planet :-)

Bray was my MLA and we were waiting to see the back of him. Gordon gave him a job as a staff person. An earlier comment about moving on seems appropriate. Move on Bray, to somewhere else. I like Bill Tielmans suggestion as the first poster.
