Former Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority Commissioner Henry M. Sloma and Niagara Falls Board of Education Attorney Angelo Massaro may be appointed Tuesday to the two vacancies on the Niagara County Industrial Development Agency board of directors.
"Sloma and Massaro are front-running candidates without any question," County Legislature Chairman William L. Ross said Friday. He said he wants action on appointments to the IDA at Tuesday's Legislature meeting, and the choices will be discussed by members of the Republican-led majority caucus over the weekend.
Sloma, a former nursing home administrator, has been a major contributor to Republican candidates over the years. He would succeed Kevin C. Schuler, who resigned from the board last month, citing a potential conflict of interest with his new job as regional manager of Mercury Public Affairs, a lobbying firm.
Massaro would succeed Niagara Falls School Superintendent Carmen A. Granto, who also resigned.
