The Manitoba Liberal Party has shuffled around its staff prior to the start of the abbreviated legislative session on Thursday.

Former communications director Dave Shorr has been replaced by Nancy Chippendale. Party leader Jon Gerrard thanked Shorr for his service in a Twitter message late Tuesday afternoon.

“Dave and I parted on excellent terms. I am grateful for his many contributions,” Gerrard said.

Also joining the team is Brian Peel, who will take on the role as chief of staff, while legislative staff person Mie Larsen becomes administrative director.

Brian Peel has a management background in the not-for-profit sector in both public health and in the arts. Nancy Chippendale previously worked in the field of advocacy, raising awareness of palliative care, homelessness and inner-city recreation.

The Liberals still only hold one seat in the province.
