Premier Silver announces new Chief of Staff

Today, Premier Sandy Silver announced the appointment of Jasmina Randhawa as his new Chief of Staff.

Janet Moodie, current Chief of Staff, is retiring.

Ms. Randhawa will begin her tenure as Chief of Staff effective April 29, 2021.

Jasmina Randhawa has worked extensively throughout the Yukon government and brings a wealth of experience to the role. Her strategic insight and no-nonsense approach will help our team hit the ground running in this new mandate and get on with doing the good work for Yukoners.

I want to thank Janet from the bottom of my heart for her guidance, wisdom and patience over the course of the last mandate. There is nobody more deserving of a long, restful retirement after a truly exemplary career in the Yukon.

Premier Sandy Silver

I am extremely humbled and grateful for the opportunity to serve Yukoners in this unique role. I am looking forward to working with Premier Silver and his team, to move our territory forward.
