Farewell party for RCIL executive director

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The executive director for the Resource Center for Independent Living is going off to do a little independent living of his own.

A party giving Burt Danovitz a festive send-off took place this evening at RCIL'S offices on Genesee Street in Utica.

After 30 years of leadership his last day is slated for June 28. RCIL officials say he will consult with the organization until a permanent replacement for his position is found. Those he worked with say he will be sorely missed.

"He really is an incredible leader. He as worked with staff at every level of the organization," said Joann Marshall. "He really believes and lives the principles and values of the organization."
