City of Vancouver set to benefit from new NDP government says expert

VICTORIA – With the first hires of their new government, the B.C. NDP have sent a signal that their goals align with the province’s largest city and its ruling Vision Vancouver party.

Three-term City of Vancouver councillor Geoff Meggs has become NDP premier-designate John Horgan’s chief of staff, the NDP announced Tuesday.

Meggs has resigned his seat on city council to assume the new job. He previously worked as former NDP premier Glen Clark’s director of communications, executive director of the B.C. Federation of Labour and was a founding member of Vision Vancouver. Most recently, he co-chaired the NDP’s election platform development committee.
