Provincial New Democrat organization director Nikki Hill will be leaving her post at the end of June, Public Eye has learned. In an interview, Ms. Hill - who has been the party's organization director since February 2004 - explained, "I've intended to leave for a while. I actually meant a few years ago to go and do my masters and do different things and I never intended to be here forever. I don't think it's one of those jobs you do forever. But I just haven't had time to leave with all these elections. So I kind of decided late last year that this would be my last election" as a party staffer.
But Ms. Hill stressed she'll continue to be involved with the New Democrats. "I'm still going to do things. I might even run for executive. We'll see how it goes," she said.
