It seems the provincial New Democrats may actually be in a position to hire a new communications director and research director early in the New Year. Interviews for both jobs got underway last week and are expected to end sometime in the first few weeks of January. Meanwhile, our understanding is that the New Democrats will not be hiring a replacement for Scott Perchall. Instead, his duties as the leader's press secretary will be shared between senior communications officer Rich Overgaard and senior communications advisor Jim Rutkowski.
