He said his past experiences help qualify him to economically develop a town that has both urban and suburban qualities.
Kathy Burbank, executive director for the Guilderland Chamber of Commerce, and a January appointee to the economic advisory council, said she is happy to have the opportunity to work with Mr. Kriger.
"It is my understanding that Mr. Kriger has a great understanding of economic development in Guilderland; and our issues with residential versus business development. I look forward to working with him," Burbank said.
She said the GEDAC is moving toward providing a "central resource point," for Guilderland businesses.
"We have focused on making commercial real estate listings available in one place, with the property zoning, water and other amenities available as well," Burbank said. "New space in Guilderland is limited, so existing space should be promoted.""
