Senior civil servant leaves position to aid Tories

Len Simms, a former PC leader and a minister in former premier Brian Peckford’s cabinet, has stepped down as the head of the Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation so he can help the provincial Progressive Conservative Party in the upcoming election campaign. Former premier Danny Williams appointed him head of the NLHC in 2005, a role he left in 2007 to help Williams get re-elected. It will be interesting to see where Simms may end up after the election finishes.
