Alberta's Premier has tasked the MLA for Fort Saskatchewan - Vegreville with some new responsibilities
Jessica Littlewood, MLA for Fort Saskatchewan - Vegreville, has been tasked with a new assignment after a recent Alberta N.D.P. cabinet shuffle.
Premier Rachel Notley appointed Littlewood Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Economic Development and Trade for Small Business on Tuesday.
Littlewood says she hopes her appointment will help shine a light on small business in rural Alberta.
Littlewood was in town last night for the Vegreville & Area Annual Awards Gala where she talked about the on-going bounce back of Alberta's economy in recent months.
