The Regional Economic Development (REDC) initiative was launched by Governor Cuomo in 2011. As part of the plan, 10 Regional Councils were developed across the state, with the goal
of developing long-term strategic economic growth within each region. Each Regional Council is made up of public and private organization leaders in each region and headed by co-chairs. The co-chairs of the Finger Lakes Regional Council are Robert Duffy and Anne Kress. More information about the Regional Economic Development Councils can be found at: www.regionalcouncils.ny.gov.
