Sasha Angus naimed chairman of NEDC
Sasha Angus replaces Susan Cudahy as CEO of Nanaimo Economic Development Corp.
Sasha Angus left Alberta a few years back in a bit of a rush.
Alberta's Finance Department has confirmed an aide to a former MLA has paid back $29,000 in personal expenses he charged to a government credit card, including a Las Vegas hotel bill and luggage.
Sasha Angus worked at the legislature for 3½ years as an executive assistant to former MLA and economic development minister Mark Norris.
According to a 2004 memo leaked to CBC News, when Angus left government he owed $29,000 in personal expenses he had charged to his government credit card. The memo was addressed to then Finance Minister Shirley McClellan.
"I have discussed this situation with Mr. Rory Campbell, deputy minister of economic development, on a couple of occasions, as he has been aware of this situation for a period of time," wrote McClellan's deputy at the time, Peter Kruselnicki.
"I would appreciate your direction on how best to handle this situation."
A spokesman with Alberta's Finance Department confirmed Thursday that Angus did repay the money, but the spokesman wouldn't go into any detail, saying the matter is now in the hands of Alberta's auditor general.
CBC News has also learned that when Angus worked for Norris, the Bank of Montreal froze his personal credit card and his $80,000-a-year salary at Economic Development was garnisheed to get close to $5,000 back, plus interest.
Nice!! Typical Nanaimo hiring skills
Nice to see the story make the front page of The Nanaimo Daily News exactly 24 hours after it was posted here.
I posted the link to this page on ndn site as soon as it was posted here. Time to sue the headhunters and fire the City bureaucrats that rubber stamped the hiring? Recall the politicians involved?
The guy screwed up a few years ago and made ammends. Let him start fresh here.
Hey, did NEDcorp use a local headhunting firm or did they use one from out of town?!
