NEW CASTLE — David Richards has been hired as assistant general manager of the New Castle Area Transit Authority.

Manager Leonard Lastoria said Richards’ starting salary will be $50,000. The authority board approved the hiring this week.

Richards, 51, replaces Vicki Antonio who resigned in the summer.

Lastoria said a committee made up of three board members and the authority’s solicitor selected Richards from 25 applicants.

Richards served most recently as project manager for Bet-Tech Construction of Aliquippa and for 12 years as chief financial officer for PF Technologies of New Castle. He is also a former city councilman.
