Jerome! gets his dream job

Jerome Kennedy is the new health minister.

There was talk a year or so ago that Kennedy was anxious to move into the high pressure job as a way of proving himself on the way to the Eighth Floor.

He didn’t get his wish at the time, what with the Premier stuffing him in finance instead.

Well, a short while later Jerome got his dream job.

And he won’t have quite the same commute as his predecessors did when cabinet meetings were on.

Interestingly enough, the Premier didn’t take the opportunity to replace Trevor Taylor who quit last week.

Instead, the acting minister of transportation will carry on.  Tom Marshall will go back to finance and Felix Collins will get the minister’s job in justice.

There won’t be a permanent replacement for Trevor until some unspecified time later, apparently.
