Gessow named new fiscal adviser to Senate

Posted 12/10/12

PROVIDENCE – Senate President M. Teresa Paiva Weed announced last week that Eugene I. Gessow has been named the chamber’s fiscal adviser.

Gessow is currently assistant commissioner for field operations for the Mass. Department of Transitional Assistance. He has held management positions in state government throughout the country, including director of the Division of Medical Services for the Arkansas Department of Human Services; director of the Iowa Department of Human Services; Iowa Medicaid director; director of the Maine Bureau of Medical Services; deputy secretary for finance for the New Mexico Human Services Department; and budget director for the Mass. Division of Medical Assistance.

He has roots in Rhode Island, and in the 1990s served as director of research for the Rhode Island Public Expenditure Council. Prior to his work for RIPEC, he was legal counsel for the R.I. House Finance Committee.

“We were very fortunate that candidates of such exceptional caliber sought this demanding position,” said Paiva Weed.

Gessow fills the vacancy created when Peter M. Marino was appointed by Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee as director of the R.I. Office of Management and Budget. •
