MOFGA Announcements - 10/16/2012.

At its Board of Directors Meeting on Sunday, the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) appointed long-time Executive Director Russell Libby to a new position: Senior Policy Advisor.

MOFGA head Russell Libby stepping down
Kennebec Journal - 10/16/2012.
Unity – Russell Libby, executive director of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, will resign Nov. 2 to become the organization's senior policy adviser. Heather Spalding, MOFGA's deputy director, will be interim executive director. "After 17-plus years as MOFGA's executive director, it feels like the right time to be moving to new challenges in my life," Libby said in a press release Tuesday. Libby became MOFGA's executive director in 1995 after more than a decade on the organization's board of directors.

Such was the point of a clever, but incomplete piece of criticism that appeared in The New York Times’s weekly Science Times section on Tuesday.
