Premier Doug Ford has revamped his re-election campaign team, enlisting respected Progressive Conservative veterans and injecting new blood in the wake of the "French connection" cronyism scandal.

"I am writing today to inform you about the newly formed leader's advisory council on election readiness," Ford wrote in an email to riding association presidents and other officials on Friday.

"The council will replace the former election readiness committee," he said, referring to the smaller group unveiled Jan. 22 that included Dean French, his then chief of staff.
