In a special interview with Keizer, she said: "I am blessed and grateful to have been offered the opportunity to become your Town Manager. I'd like to thank the members of the Search Committee and the Select Board for their faith in me, and for making a person "from away" feel so very welcome. I grew up on Barnegat Bay in New Jersey, and every summer my family and I came to Maine, a tradition that I carried on once I had my own family. I have three children, all chose to attend college in Maine, two have graduated and fallen in love with Mainers, and the last one is a freshmen at USM. They have all chosen to stay and make their lives in the midcoast area, therefore I have decided to relocate to our place on Oyster Creek in Damariscotta.
"I have over 25 years of municipal experience, and I am eager to lend my talents to the community. I welcome the opportunities and challenges that leading Waldoboro will provide, I promise that we will seize the opportunities and conquer the challenges as a community. I do hope that once I arrive many of you will find some time to stop in for a visit so that I can get acquainted with all of you. I am eager to work as a team with the town employees and the many volunteers who dedicate their time and talents to the community. The good of the town will always be my guiding principle. I look forward to many years of service and becoming part of the Waldoboro family."
Keizer is due to start around May 1, 2017. Congratulations Julie !
