Pete decided to join Acadia Center because as a Town Councilor he has been able to substantially lower the carbon footprint of the Town where he lives. He hopes to scale up a community outreach program at Acadia Center while performing his other duties as Maine Program Director: monitoring bills in the Maine Legislature and appearing before the Maine PUC. Pete already knows many in the Maine environmental nonprofit community from years as a volunteer.

Pete is a lawyer who worked first in private practice and then as an Assistant Attorney General in the Natural Resources Division of Maine Attorney General’s Office, where he helped achieve the cleanup of some of Maine’s worst environmental disasters. Pete is a graduate of the University of Maine and Duke Law School.
