Earlier, we reported former BC Cancer Foundation president and chief executive officer Mary McNeil would be running for the provincial Liberals in False-Creek. But who's going to be managing her campaign once she wins that nomination. Well, it's been suggested Mark Jiles, who formerly managed Premier Gordon Campbell's constituency campaigns, may be tapped for the task. But, in an interview with Public Eye, Ms. McNeil stated, "It's too early to say that. Obviously, he is in demand with a few people. Because he has helped me in the past" - managing her federal Conservative nomination bid in Vancouver-Quadra - "he's doing some work with me now...But until I'm actually the candidate - because I've got to sell memberships right now and I'm in that process - and it gets closer to the time, we just haven't made those decisions."
