Gov. John Baldacci last week nominated two new board members to the Maine State Housing Authority. He also reappointed the agency’s director, Dale McCormick, and two standing board members. The appointments are subject to confirmation by the Senate.
The MSHA sells bonds to finance mortgages or the purchase of mortgages for low-income families and individuals.
McCormick has been director of the authority for five years. Before that she was state treasurer for eight years and a three-term senator.
“She has helped to ensure that Maine families have access to safe and affordable housing,” Baldacci said in a press release. “She has been a critical member of my team involved in making Maine a leader nationally in weatherization: reducing the cost of energy, reducing carbon emissions, and growing jobs.”
Baldacci’s new appointments are Barbara Berry, a realtor at Coldwell Banker in Kennebunk and Raymond Cota Jr., vice president for real estate at Webber Oil Co. The governor reappointed board members Don Gean and Carol Kontos.
