By:  Bill Dunne
One of the most overlooked aspects of the year just ended is the vindication of Chief Justice John Roberts -- a vindication that showed up as the national catastrophe known as ObamaCare got rolling.  Roberts may have also doomed Hillary Clinton's chance to live in the White House again... click here to read whole editorial


Fort Fairfield Welcomes New Marketing and Economic Director

Tim Goff Brings Experience Building Working Relationships to Town’s Chamber of Commerce

Fort Fairfield Journal,

December 10, 2014


The Town of Fort Fairfield is pleased to announce the hiring of Tim Goff as its new Marketing and Economic Director. Tim will provide critical insights and input helping to market the town and enhance the economic climate for both new and existing businesses. He will be responsible for generating new investment in the community, attracting development and retaining businesses in the town.  Tim will also oversee the activities of the Fort Fairfield Chamber of Commerce as its Executive Director, including organizing the annual Agri-Business Trade Fair and serving as Director of the Maine Potato Blossom Festival.  Tim Goff has an extensive background in communications, having spent the past two decades working in broadcasting, both in radio and television.  He most recently worked as a multimedia journalist for WCSH-TV in Portland and sister station WLBZ-TV in Bangor. Tim has received numerous awards for his work, both for his reporting and photography, and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience gained from his travels across the state, and throughout the country, to this position. “I look forward to building upon the relationships I have developed over the years telling stories about the people and places that make Maine special,” said Goff. “When I was presented with this opportunity to return to my roots, be closer to family and friends, and to share the story of my hometown to people throughout the world, I jumped at the chance and look forward to the challenge.”  Tim, a 1994 graduate of Fort Fairfield High School, was hired to fill the position left vacant when Michael Bosse was promoted to the position of Town Manager.

   “We are excited to have someone with Tim’s experience and skill-set join the town staff,” stated Bosse.  “It is always a great feeling to welcome someone home, especially someone who is as committed as Tim is to serving his community and is equally passionate about its people.”

   As part of his efforts to reinvigorate the town’s Chamber, membership for the 2015 calendar year will be free for all business owners and residents of Fort Fairfield.

   “The Chamber of Commerce is excited to be able to bring Tim and his family back to Fort Fairfield,” said Michael Woodman, President of the Fort Fairfield Chamber of Commerce.  “His enthusiasm and energy are evident, and he has a love for this town.   The past few weeks we have been meeting to discuss the focus of the Chamber of Commerce, and how to better assist our local businesses.   Tim has brought many great ideas to the forefront.   We always welcome input from our local businesses, so feel free to contact Tim as he would love to meet you, if he has not done so already.”

   The Town of Fort Fairfield is located in the heart of Aroostook County, Maine and is the 6th largest community in The County. ‘Friendly’ Fort Fairfield is a four-season recreation destination just steps from Canada, with a diverse population and business sector.
