Batavia, New York — Jerry Kozlowski has been appointed to the "Higher Education Work Group" of Governor Cuomo's Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council. Kozlowski will assist the Council with the development of a comprehensive, five-year strategic plan to galvanize regional and local economic development for the Finger Lakes area. The workgroup has been defined as the "heart of the Council's work" by the Governor.
New York’s ten Regional Economic Development Council’s are tasked to assemble detailed strategies to capitalize on principal regional economic drivers and other opportunities, and to address critical issues that have impeded appropriate economic growth. The timetable is ambitious and work needs to be completed by mid-November. A final decision from Albany in December 2011 will outline how almost $1 billion dollars in new state funding will be allocated to the ten regions.
“I am honored to be a part of this important work” said Kozlowski. “Millions of dollars are at stake for the GLOW region and I look forward to helping our team identify and develop transformative projects that achieve our region’s many needs”. Kozlowski currently serves as the Associate Vice President for Workforce Development at Genesee Community College and is the incoming Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Genesee County Chamber of Commerce.
