Ventura burnishes its green credentials
Cities across the region are talking about how to attract green jobs. On May 17, the city of Ventura will have a green business developer working the case full time.
Joey Briglio worked for Ventura for about six years in a range of planning and environmental jobs and is returning to fill the newly created post. The idea for the job sprung from an economic summit last year where city leaders met with residents and private-sector economic development groups to map out Ventura’s future.
“What I really want to do is create less of a wall, where people see government as its own entity and want to stay away from government,” Briglio said. “I want to be a bridge builder.”
