The recently hired director of the Elmore County Economic Development Authority was introduced during a recent Elmore County Commission work session.

Gary Cox, who officially took the position on Dec. 1, said he is excited to be in this position.

As an Elmore County native and Stanhope Elmore High School alumnus, Cox said he is invested in the community.

Cox said the ECEDA is currently working on several projects, which he said will benefit Elmore County.

“We’re just right on the edge of doing some great things in Elmore County and I look forward to this opportunity,” Cox said. “I’m honored to be in this position.”

Cox replaced former ECEDA director Leisa Finley, who resigned earlier this year.
