John MacQuar­rie re­tir­ing from pub­lic ser­vice

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

John MacQuar­rie, P.E.I.’s deputy min­is­ter of trans­porta­tion, in­fra­struc­ture and en­ergy, is re­tir­ing from pub­lic ser­vice. Pre­mier Wade MacLauch­lan rec­og­nized MacQuar­rie’s con­tri­bu­tions to Prince Ed­ward Is­land and the sig­nif­i­cant ad­vance­ments achieved un­der his lead­er­ship. MacQuar­rie worked with the pro­vin­cial civil ser­vice for 34 years, in­clud­ing 16 years as a deputy min­is­ter. He is re­tir­ing from the pub­lic ser­vice to pur­sue new op­por­tu­ni­ties in the pri­vate sec­tor ef­fec­tive June 30.

Dar­ren Chais­son has ac­cepted the po­si­tion as act­ing deputy min­is­ter.

With nearly 20 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in the depart­ment, Chais­son has a keen un­der­stand­ing of the im­por­tance Is­lan­ders place on safe and strate­gic in­fra­struc­ture, in­clud­ing roads, com­mu­nity wa­ter and waste­water systems, and clean en­ergy. Is­lan­ders would rec­og­nize him in his most re­cent role as the di­rec­tor of high­way main­te­nance.
