It is my pleasure to introduce two new members to the RER Team: Inson Kim and Leland Salomon.
Inson Kim, currently the Mayor’s Director of Policy and Legislative Affairs, will be joining RER as the Director of Intergovernmental and External Affairs. Inson will report directly to me, and she will be responsible for overseeing all RER legislative and intergovernmental activities, and to develop and implement a coordinated communications strategy. Inson has an outstanding track record in all of these arenas and I look forward to her starting with us on Monday, November 10, 2014, in this new capacity.
In addition, Leland Salomon, currently an Assistant Director for ISD, will assume the role of Deputy Director of Economic Development beginning November 17, 2014. Leland will be responsible for identifying and implementing sustainable economic growth strategies, serve as the Mayor’s representative on the Beacon Council, and maintain active engagement with other County economic development initiatives. Leland’s experience with land and economic development opportunities will ensure the successful continuation and expansion of activities initiated under the prior incumbent, Josh Gelfman.
Inson Kim was on the Mayor's Staff since he was a County Commissioner. The only photo I could find of her was of her talking to Jose Luis Lopez. Leland Salomon was from the GSA Real Estate Development Division.
Why did Gimenez let Inson Kim go? Was it so she can watch over the over-bearing Osterholt and eventually take over?
