Wilmers Exits ESDC as State Development Agency Turmoil Continues

The Senate has been monopolizing the chaos in Albany of late, but the Paterson administration has its own problems as well. The chairman of the state’s main development arm, Bob Wilmers, is resigning after a year in the post, according to multiple people familiar with the situation.
The departure from the development agency, Empire State Development Corporation, gives Governor Paterson yet another vacant slot to fill in an administration that has been marked by turnover lately. It also adds to the tumult at ESDC, which oversees billions in subsidies and private development projects in the state, as its CEO, Marisa Lago, jumped ship on June 5.
