Floyd McCormick is replacing Patrick Michael as clerk of the Yukon legislative assembly.

An all-party committee recently selected McCormick to replace Michael, who is retiring at the end of March.

McCormick, 46, has served as deputy clerk of the legislature since 2001.

He holds a PhD in political science from the University of Alberta and is a member of the society of Clerks-at-the-Table in Commonwealth parliaments.

He once worked for the Yukon News, as well as CBC Radio One and Yukon College.

Job ads for the clerk’s position at the Yukon legislature have been running in national newspapers.

Michael, 55, will leave two vacancies when he retires at the end of March.

McCormick will take over as clerk of the legislature.

But the chief electoral officer post, which Michael has held since 1983, has yet to be filled.

Michael has been the legislature’s clerk since 1978.

He retires as the longest-serving clerk of any legislative assembly in Canada.
