Laurie Graham returns to Nova Scotia, becomes premier's principal secretary

Laurie Graham, ditched by CTV as an Ottawa national reporter, has returned to her native Nova Scotia as the premier's principal secretary.
 She steps into the position previously held by Ryan Grant, who became deputy chief of staff.
Premier Stephen McNeil says the principal secretary does outreach work with private sector and not-for-profit organizations.
“She brings with her obviously the scope of not only having experience in our province, but nationally, working and dealing with what's been happening across governments,” said McNeil.
 Ms Graham will be paid more than the premier's chief of staff in her new role, and significantly more than the last principal secretary.
Ryan Grant was making a little under $92,000 as of November. Graham will make $160,000 – $10,000 more than the premier's new chief of staff, Kristan Hines, who's paid $150,000.
Grant's been bumped to $125,000 a year in his new role as the deputy chief of staff.
