On Monday afternoon, the Vandalia City Council made it official as they unanimously approved the hiring of Amber Daulbaugh as the City’s new Economic Development Director. But, the discussion of her taking the position started quite a bit before that. Vandalia Mayor Rick Gottman says he first mentioned to Daulbaugh that he would like to talk to her back in April, when Daulbaugh was supervising activities as the YMCA Program Director at Healthy Kids Day. Gottman says he just felt from watching Daulbaugh work that she would be right for the Economic Development position.
And, Daulbaugh says she was certainly surprised when the Mayor first said he wanted to talk further with her, at that time not knowing the topic.
Daulbaugh takes over as Economic Development Director. She will officially start on Monday in the position. We’ll hear more on the hiring coming up tomorrow during NewsCenter.
