Steve Levesque Re-Elected to Association of Defense Communities Board of Directors
MRRA Boss to Serve Second Three-Year Term
WASHINGTON – The Association of Defense Communities (ADC) has re-elected Steve Levesque to serve on the ADC Board of Directors.
Levesque is the executive director of the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority, overseeing the redevelopment of former Naval Air Station Brunswick. Levesque brings to this role more than 30 years of experience in business management, economic and community development, land use planning and environmental management in both the public and private sectors. Previously, under Governor Angus King, Levesque served as the Commissioner of the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development. He previously served on ADC’s Board of Directors from 2007 to 2010.
The Association of Defense Communities (www.defensecommunities.org) builds strong communities that support America’s military. ADC is the connection point for leaders from communities, states, the military and industry on community-military issues and installation management to enhance knowledge, information sharing and best practices. With nearly 300 communities, states, regions and affiliated industry organizations, ADC represents every major defense community/state in the nation.
“Steve’s long-respected experience in redevelopment and economic revitalization will serve as a bedrock for ADC’s leadership as we face the very real possibility of a near-future BRAC round.” ADC President Bill Parry said. “His election reflects the strong faith and support our members have recognized in his leadership as the founder and co-chair of ADC’s Local Redevelopment Authority Director’s Council.”
The election occurred during the association’s annual Defense Communities National Summit in Washington, D.C. The volunteer position is a three-year term.
