STATE OF MAINE

COUNTY OF PENOBSCOT

COURT OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

97 HAMMOND STREET

BANGOR, MAINE  04401-4998

 

June 10, 2013

 

Honorable Mark W. Eves

Speaker of the House

2 State House Station

Augusta, Maine 04333

 

Dear Speaker Eves:

 

It is with great pride that the Penobscot County Commissioners take this opportunity to recommend Honorable Charles Pray of Millinocket, Maine for appointment and consideration to fill a vacant seat on the LUPC.  Their vote to confirm Mr. Pray's appointment for this seat occurred on Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at their regularly scheduled meeting.

 

It is not every citizen who is willing to serve their neighbors.  Mr. Charles Pray has served the citizens of the State of Maine and Penobscot County for eighteen years in the Maine Senate and an equal number of years in Washington in the US Department of Energy in various capacities and living and working in Millinocket, Maine and the Unorganized Territory.

 

After a very deliberative process of reviewing resumes and applications of a large number of very qualified applicants followed by a one on one interview process, it was clear to the Commissioners of Penobscot County that Mr. Pray's background and knowledge of the history of the Land Use Planning Commission and the Unorganized Territory will make him a very valuable and contributing member of the Commission not only representing the interests of Penobscot County but all Maine citizens.

 

Enclosed is a copy of the completed background paperwork requested by the Legislative Committee.  Mr. Pray and the Penobscot County Commissioners look forward to the Public Hearing process.

 

S/William J. Collins

Penobscot County Administrator
