  PORTLAND — The Maine Community Foundation has elected Anna Eleanor Roosevelt of Embden, Peter Mills of Cornville and Karen W. Stanley of Castine to its Board of Directors
“The Board of Directors plays a crucial role in guiding our work,” said Maine Community Foundation President and CEO Meredith Jones. “These distinguished individuals will add special expertise as we head into our 30th year,” she said.

  A Maine native, Mills was recently appointed executive director of the Maine Turnpike Authority. An attorney for more than 30 years, he was a founding member of the Somerset Economic Development Corporation and FirstPark, an innovative economic development project of the Kennebec Regional Development Authority. Mills served in the Maine Legislature for 16 years, in both the House and Senate, and held Republican leadership positions on a number of committees.
  Stanley is chair of Camden National Bank. She was co-owner of Stanley Subaru in Ellsworth. Prior to that, she was a member of the senior management team at Priority Management, an international training and development firm. She received the 2004 Corporate Citizen of the Year award from the Ellsworth Area Chamber of Commerce. Stanley has been involved with community and civic organizations, including Hospice of Hancock County and Maine Coast Memorial Hospital.
