As EDO for the Town of Deloraine my goal for is to increase knowledge of community development within ourselves. I read a quote that has stuck with me, “I can’t teach anybody anything I can only make them think”. I believe that is my mission going forward as I also learn everyday something new. I believe we have the power to change, direct and steer our community towards a vibrant successful future. My hope over the course of the next few months is to open the flows of communication and engage people to get involved.
Please feel free to drop by my office anytime!

“Community Economic Development is a community driven process where communities determine their own solutions to economic, social and environmental issues in order to build healthy and economically viable communities. It is a participatory, grassroots approach where local communities choose deliberate actions to influence the local economy and to improve the quality of life for its residents.”
