Former Cortland County IT Director Robert Corpora begins his duty today (December 30) as the new county administrator, after being appointed unanimously by the full Legislature on December 19.
He visited WXHC the next morning and spoke with Vinnie Bellardini about stepping into his new role, which was featured on this past Saturday’s Meet Cortland County segment.
Corpora now fills a key financial position in the county that’s been vacant for the past five years – and just months after a state comptroller audit urged the county to hire an administrator immediately in order to begin properly managing its finances.
While he acknowledges there are many challenges that lie ahead, Corpora said he’s optimistic that the county is now on the right track.
