The Department of Economic Development Feb. 24 named Miguel Salinas assistant director.

Previously Salinas was program manager at the Department of Planning.

“Miguel has proven himself to be the right choice both by his work as the interim assistant director and throughout the interview process,” said Buddy Rizer, the director of economic development in a statement released to the media.

Salinas will manage the department when Rizer is out of town on business trips or is otherwise unavailable.

“Leading a multi-year strategic initiative in the Planning Department to accelerate economic development in the Route 28 corridor has given me in-depth, hands-on experience with the county’s commercial development," Salinas said in a prepared statement.


The Economic Development fell short according to the BoS and the tax revenues. After the 587 thousand dollar allocated to the DEC for new hires you would think that promoting from within should be viewed with much skepticism. Assume the worst and figure payroll just went up for a sub-level group.
