Gioia expected to chair ECHDC


New leadership is coming to the agency charged with remaking Buffalo's waterfront.

Robert Gioia is expected to become the next Chairman of the Erie Canal Harbor development Corporation, replacing Sam Hoyt who has been serving as the interim chairman since February 28th.

Currently serving as the head of Oishei Foundation, Robert Gioia will be following in his brother's footsteps. Anthony Gioia was the first Chairman of the agency in 2005.

According to the Buffalo News, Governor Cuomo's office would not comment on the appointment.
