The Montezuma Community Economic Development Association (MCEDA) announces that Robert Dobry began work in August as the Economic Development Consultant with MCEDA.

Dobry has served on the MCEDA Board for the past two years, most recently as the Vice Chair and says he is excited to deepen his work supporting economic development in Montezuma County.

“It is rewarding to see someone already involved in the organization, who knows all the positive work and also the challenges to be so committed to MCEDA’s success,” said Laura Lewis Marchino, executive director of Region 9 EDD, a MCEDA member.

Dobry is a former Trustee of the Town of Dolores and is currently a member of the Montezuma County Hospital District Board. As the position is part-time, Dobry will continue in his role as Director of Corporate Support with KSJD and the Sunflower Theatre.
