Newly elected Maine Governor Janet Mills made the spectacular announcement that she will be nominating Amanda Beal to serve as Commissioner of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry (ACF).
Amanda is a capable and trusted ally who is dedicated to Maine and has served on the MOFGA (Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Assn) Board of Directors (14 years total; two years as President). She grew up on a Maine dairy farm and has earned a PhD in Natural Resources. She now is CEO of Maine Farmland Trust. So Amanda blends real world experience with deep background and vision in farm and resource policy.
Congratulations to both Governor Mills and Amanda Beal for this wise and bold decision! Caleb, Jim & Megan
