Earlier, we reported provincial New Democrat caucus communications director Jim Rutkowski would be leaving the legislative precincts toward the end of this month. But it seems that departure will be temporary. Mr. Rutowksi, who tendered his resignation to spend more time with his son, will be joining the Opposition's leader office in a new role this coming February. He'll be working Monday through Thursday as a senior communications advisor to Carole James, sharing responsibility for media relations with newly-appointed senior communications officer Rich Overgaard.
