The following statement is from Kimberly Parker, Board Chair, ERC
The executive committee of the Nevada County Economic Resource Council (ERC) learned yesterday afternoon about the arrest of Mr. Blinder. At this point we have very little information and need to understand the details before making further comment.
Mr. Blinder is an independent contractor that has served as the interim executive director since January 2012. With his leadership the ERC has gained strength and momentum in addressing economic issues in our community.
The ERC Board is committed to the organization’s mission “to enhance the economic vitality of Nevada County by supporting the retention, creation and attraction of quality jobs, while retaining our unique environment.” We believe this is one of the most exciting times in our organization’s history and will move forward with upcoming plans and activities.
