Wasn't Colby's last job at Carroll Engineering? Can someone explain to me how that parlays into economic development, grant writing and tourism?
I don't know about Tony Felosi's grant writing capabilities. Wasn't aware that his position called for grant writing expertise. Isn't he the Flood Plain Coordinator & County Risk Manager....No? Maybe a Flood Plain Coordinator requires some grant writing skills. I dunno. I don't think that's a duty you would find listed on Risk Management job description. I could be wrong.
I'm not sure that previous employment with an Engineering firm would automatically disqualify someone like Colby Goss, with a masters in Public Administration. It surely doesn't hurt to have someone with previous work experience within the County. Someone that might be serious about Economic Development and Tourism needed to grow the County's tax base. I dunno. You tell me?
