Manager of the Romeo Saganash Campaign joins Dewar team
OTTAWA – Today Dan Wilson, former Campaign Manager for Romeo Saganash’s leadership bid, endorsed Paul Dewar for leader of the NDP. He will be joining Dewar as a Senior Strategist for the Paul Dewar Campaign.
Dan Wilson is a lifelong New Democrat with a background working in foreign affairs, human rights and Indigenous issues. He helped found the NDP Aboriginal Commission and spent five years serving both as the commission’s Co-chair and as a member of the NDP Federal Executive (2006-2011). Until the recent withdrawal of Romeo Saganash from the leadership race, Wilson served as Campaign Manager for that campaign.
“Paul Dewar possesses a lot of the same values and leadership qualities as Romeo Saganash,” said Dan Wilson. “I’ve known Paul for many years and I can say without hesitation that he is a committed social democrat, a strategic thinker, and most of all, he understands how we need to grow the NDP if we are going to form government in 2015”.
In a brief statement, Paul Dewar thanked Dan Wilson for his support.
“Dan Wilson is an impressive leader within our party and the Indigenous community,” said Paul Dewar. “If we are going to make the type of breakthrough necessary to defeat the Conservatives in 2015, we’re going to need to build our party and Dan Wilson knows how to do just that”.
