Sorbara Steps Down as Liberal Campaign Chair
Last year, he stepped down as Liberal MPP in Vaughan. Now, Greg Sorbara says he's hanging up his political gloves all together resigning as Liberal campaign chair.
Sorbara says this has nothing to do with Kathleen Wynne being chosen to lead in the party and the province. In fact, he says he spoke to the premier about stepping down, he told her be believes she would be in the corner office at Queen's Park for a long time.
Sorbara says when he stepped down as MPP he had every intention of helping former Premier Dalton McGuinty win reelection but when McGuinty announced his intentions to resign, Sorbara had a chance to re-evaluate his own political career.
He adds he's considering an outside opportunity that wouldn't allow him to be involved in politics.
Sorbara laughs that his wife will be relieved he'll be stepping away from the political realm but underlines she has understood what his job meant to him.
He says this new opportunity will give him a chance to focus on his family.
The party's new campaign co-chairs will be Wynne leadership campaign co-chair Health Minister Deb Matthews and former chief of staff to Prime Minister Paul Martin, Tim Murphy.
