I’m throwing my hat into the ring as well. I do not have a master’s degree, but I have 7-years working at an Area Development District in Kentucky. My positions were (all at the same time) Homeland Security Coordinator, Economic Development Planner overseeing the regional economic development committee and preparation of the yearly CEDS document for EDA. I also worked with small bussiness development and still am a KY Certified CDBG writer and administrator.
My dealings with USDA are extensive: Gateway RC&D Charter member and Chairman to 4-H Extension Council President. I am very interested in this position….
I am sure the others will join me in saying, “THANKS, Heather for your help in this matter.”
