The Imperial County Film Commission, which brought in as much as $3 million in business locally last year, has a new executive director — El Centro native Allison Martin
"She was far and away the best applicant," said Nan Rebik, president of the Imperial County Arts Commission board of directors. "She's very excited, she's very up, she's very enthusiastic. I think she's going to do a good job."
Martin, 28, said acting has always been a passion for her and she loves public relations.
"I've always worked with the public and I like it," she said Friday. "I love acting, so it all kind of fits together."
Martin began working for the commission March 26 after working for the county as an HIV counselor with the Behavioral Health Services Department's alcohol and drug program. Before that she worked at the Imperial County Office of Education.
