Laurie is the Kennebunkport Town Manager since 2014 and has served her entire professional career in Maine municipal management. Since first arriving in Kennebunkport she has heard first hand how the changes in year round population have been slowly changing the culture of the community. Laurie's role on the board is to serve as a connection between the Housing Trust and the local government.
"I believe that this is the single biggest issue facing Kennebunkport now and in the years to come. Providing housing for young families coming home and seniors seeking to downsize will create the multi-generational mix for Kennebunkport that will establish it long term as a community, not just a political subdivision.
