Port Huron taps new director for DDA

A familiar face at city hall has been named the new head of the Port Huron Downtown Development Authority. Cynthia Cutright has been selected to lead the DDA following the resignation of former director Natalie Watson earlier this month. Cutright has been the administrative assistant to the City Manager, Fire Chief, and Parks and Recreation office since 2018. Prior to that, she worked for the Michigan Senate and the Michigan Bankers Association. The Port Huron Downtown Development Authority is responsible such events as Chilly Fest and Blue Water Fest, as well as improvements to the downtown streetscape and lighting.
