Sandy Parker, president and CEO of the Rochester Business Alliance, says she expects Bob Duffy to reapply for her job. Parker retires at the end of the year and Duffy, currently New York's lieutenant governor, isn't running on Governor Cuomo's re-election ticket this fall.
"I would be very surprised if he doesn't throw his hat in the ring," Parker said during an interview today. "He's going to be finished with his responsibilities at the end of the year. Do I think he would be a good candidate for the job? Absolutely. But I'm not part of the selection process."
Duffy interviewed for the RBA job last year, but withdrew from consideration when the news went public. It has been widely speculated that he'd reapply, given Parker's impending departure. Parker even delayed her retirement a year, though she's never said she did it to give Duffy a chance to finish out his term as lieutenant governor.
