Steele ChrisNewton activist and former Alderman candidate Chris Steele is likely headed back to becoming chairman of Newton’s Economic Development Commission.

Steele held that post one year ago and decided not seek the EDC job in 2013 while campaigning for alderman.  His successor, Darryl Settles told the EDC members this week that he did not have the time to serve another term and nominated Steele.

The EDC will elect its new chair at its February meeting but given that Steele was the only candidate nominated, I’m guessing the election is just a formality at this point.

Settles was nominated to serve as vice chair and has agreed to serve.
