More Trouble at BERC

Last week I learned that BERC’s John Riccione had been quietly fired.

This morning a source told me that BERC’s Lorrie Abounader, who oversaw the Empire Zone program in Buffalo, has been put on administrative leave.

Abounader apparently is being disciplined for poor performance—specifically for being unresponsive to businesses that called her office.

Riccione’s firing, I’m told, was also “performance-related.”
