Governor names Curt Stiles to chair APA

The state Senate is expected to consider confirmations of three new APA board members as early as Monday evening or early Tuesday. Governor Spitzer has named Upper Saranac Lake resident Curt Stiles to serve as chairman. Stiles has served as chairman of the Upper Saranac Lake Foundation and has taken a leading role on the issue of invasive species. Reached Monday via email, Stiles declined to comment, saying that an interview would be "premature."

The Senate is also expected to confirm Dick Booth, an environmental attorney and author from Ithaca. Booth was initially named to serve as chairman, but his appointment drew criticism because he lives outside the blue line. Booth has close ties to local government groups and to the environmental community.

Governor Spitzer has also reappointed Frank Mezzano, town supervisor from Lake Pleasant. Mezzano is a veteran member of the APA who returned to the board earlier this year after a brief hiatus.

The APA, a bipartisan commission charged with oversight of the Adirondack Park, is currently led by interim chairman Cecil Wray. It's unclear whether interim executive director Mark Sengenberger will be named to fill that post permanently. Stiles takes over at a time when the APA confronts major decisions, including the Park's snowmobile policy and the fate of the Adirondack Club and Resort project in Tupper Lake.  Go to full article
