John Tory’s most senior staff member is a former journalist and communications consultant who has jumped in and out of the media and political worlds.
“This is an opportunity of a lifetime,” Chris Eby said Wednesday, less than 24 hours after Tory named him chief of staff. “Not to engage in hyperbole, but I feel like we are at a critical moment in the city’s history.”
Eby, 39, had spent the past seven months pulling 18-hour days at his day job and volunteering on Tory’s mayoral campaign.
Eby has worked as a print reporter, political staffer for Tim Hudak, a reporter for CFTO and a communications strategist.
