George McLellan, Deputy Minister of Finance and Treasury Board, will retire from government at the end of the spring legislative session. Premier Stephen McNeil made the announcement today, April 26.
“I want to thank George for his commitment to the public service, and to our province,” said Premier McNeil. “George has been a tireless public servant for much of his career, always focused on making this province stronger. He has been, and will continue to be, a trusted advisor and friend.”
Mr. McLellan’s retirement will be part of a larger deputy minister shuffle that will occur later in the spring.
“George has played a key role in helping us get on sounder financial footing in Nova Scotia,” said Finance and Treasury Board Minister Randy Delorey. “With his guidance, we are now in a place where we will be able to invest in important programs and services for Nova Scotians. I am grateful for George’s support and leadership. I want to thank George for his service to the province and wish him and his family all the best in the future.”
