A Zemsky is back on the SUNY Buffalo State College Council.
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has appointed Leslie Zemsky, a partner in Larkin Development Group, to serve on the 10-person volunteer board that oversees the operations of the college.
Zemsky succeeds Gary Brost, who stepped down earlier this year.
Her husband, Howard, served for several years on the council, including a stint as chairman. He left the council in 2015 when Cuomo selected him to lead Empire State Development Corp.
Leslie Zemsky, known as the “Director of Fun” for Larkin Development, has played a key role role in the growth of Larkinville, overseeing events attracting more than 130,000 people each season to Larkin Square, such as Food Truck Tuesdays, Live at Larkin Wednesdays, and the Larkin Square Author Series.
“Leslie is a true champion of our wonderful city and someone who understands and embraces the complexity and vibrant nature of Buffalo. I am grateful that she will now serve as one of Buffalo State’s top advocates throughout the region and across New York State. Governor Cuomo should be applauded for making this appointment,” said Buffalo State President Katherine Conway-Turner
Zemsky’s term will last through June 30, 2018.
