Governor appoints Adrian Kendall to MRDA Board

Adrian Kendall, member in the NHD’s Corporate and Commercial Law and Credit Union Law practice groups, has been appointed to serve on the Board of Trustees of the Maine Rural Development Authority.

The Maine Rural Development Authority focuses on the rural areas of Maine that have not experienced the same level of economic development success as other regions of the state, have experienced major economic losses such as plant closings and downsizings, or are economically distressed. Appointed by Governor Paul R. LePage and unanimously confirmed by the Maine State Senate, Kendall said: “The MRDA does such important work to create growth and preserve our Maine communities hit hardest by economic change, and its legislative charge allows it to step in where conventional lenders fear to tread. I’m particularly honored and excited by this opportunity to put my 25 years of experience to work and help the MRDA fulfill its special mission.”
