Executive assistant of the year

Granted, this perhaps does not reflect well on Ms. Guergis. On the other hand, it would be worse if the assistant was writing letters to the editor that were highly critical of her boss. Always look on the bright side.

The executive assistant for Simcoe-Grey MP Helena Guergis has written letters to several Ontario newspapers that are highly complimentary of her boss – and written under a different name, QMI Agency has learned. Several newspapers in the riding, located north of Toronto, have received letters from a Jessica Morgan over the last year. Morgan is the married name of Guergis’ executive assistant Jessica Craven…

After trying to deflect questions when contacted by QMI on Tuesday, Craven later admitted that she was the writer. She denied any conflict of interest. Craven said that changing her name was to “make sure they were separate from what I do for a living … I am a voter in Simcoe-Grey with my own opinions.”
