SULLIVAN RENAISSANCE NAMES SUSH AND BAEZ AS NEW STAFF
Beautification program continues to grow in 8th year
June 2, 2008
[LIBERTY] – Sullivan Renaissance has named Richard Sush as community organizer and Saraid Baez as administrative assistant. The appointments follow a job search begun in April. Both begin full-time today, June 2.
Now in its eighth year, the program has expanded its staff to meet its increased programming, which has grown to 81 beautification grants, 10 environmental demonstration grants and 25 municipal cleanup grants. Seasonal grants are still being awarded.
In other personnel changes, Kathleen Capozzoli will become office manager for Sullivan Renaissance, and horticulturalist and community liaison Vivian Multari-Ginsberg’s part-time position will become full-time.
Richard Sush has been a member of the Sullivan Renaissance Steering Committee for several years. Previously he served as Village of Monticello Manager for over five years and as Dean of Students at SullivanCountyCommunity College for six years. Sush will work primarily with Sullivan Renaissance’s community development program: to identify community leaders and volunteers throughout the county; conduct outreach to community organizations, and serve as a liaison to community-based service groups.
Saraid Baez has been Director of Special Events and Development Coordinator with The Center for Discovery for ten years. She will provide support for the staff and office and help coordinate many of the events held by Sullivan Renaissance.
“We are pleased to have hired Richard and Saraid from a large pool of qualified candidates who submitted resumes. We look forward to working with both of them and know they will make valuable contributions to our program, which – in our eighth year – has more projects and activities than ever,” said Sandra Gerry, who chairs the Sullivan Renaissance Steering Committee.
is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation. Additional funding has been secured by NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther. Significant sponsorships have also been provided by WSUL/WVOS for Category A projects and by Thunder 102 for Category B projects.
