Riley to leave Sierra Economic District

Betty Riley, the 14-year president of Sierra Economic Development District, will leave the district for a position in Oregon.

The economic development district works to alleviate unemployment and underemployment in the Sierra Nevada, while preserving the area’s quality of life.

In her time at the helm of the organization, Riley had an impact on the Truckee and North Tahoe area, guiding the Truckee Tahoe Airport Comprehensive Land Use Plan and the North Tahoe Business Association Survey Report.

“She has played a key role in the organization’s growth over that time,” said Sandy Sindt in a written statement. “We will miss her leadership skills and ability to develop strong relationships with all levels of government.”

Sindt will act as deputy director in the interim and manage district’s professional staff team to ensure that projects are being implemented and that they remain on task.
