Why I am running for a seat on the Northport Select Board

Wed, 01/13/2021 - 6:30pm

I am writing here so that my neighbors can get to know me better, as they consider how to cast their vote in the special election to the Northport Select Board on April 14.

I am Liam’s mom (age 5), wife to Will, and the office administrator at Edward Jones Investments in Lincolnville.

My roots are in Down East Maine, and prior to buying our forever home in Northport, we lived in Belfast. There I worked as the executive director of Our Town Belfast - collaborating with the city government, area business owners, and volunteers on events, marketing, and economic development.

As a board member for the Waldo County Woodshed, I helped get a distribution site established at the Northport Transfer Station. I also manage the site which means you can find me and other volunteers stacking wood and helping folks in need load their vehicles on Saturday mornings. I have served on our planning board for two years and my husband is a volunteer fireman.

My interest in serving on the Select Board comes from a deep gratitude to be living in a close-knit town with quality services like our transfer station, fire department, and EMS, a great K-8 school, and reasonable property taxes.

As a young couple starting out we were able to find a good home we could afford here. We can walk to Saturday Cove, bike to the store, and are a short drive from spending a summer afternoon at Knight’s Pond.

Giving back is important to me, and I believe I would do so effectively as your select person. I will be a helpful resource to my neighbors, as well as a careful steward of our tax dollars and of the many things that make Northport such a nice place to live.

I’d love to listen to your thoughts on our town, and can be reached at breanna.pinkham@gmail.com or 207.323.9100.
