Maine Legislative Update –

Senator Amy Volk is currently serving her second term in the Maine Senate where she serves as Assistant Majority Leader. She represents the people of Senate District 30, which includes most of Buxton, most of Scarborough and all of Gorham. Prior to being elected to the Senate, she served two terms in the Maine House as the Representative for House District 127, coastal Scarborough.

During her legislative service, Senator Volk has been a member of the Governor’s State Workforce Investment Board as well as the Labor, Commerce, Research and Economic Development Committee (LCRED). She is currently the Senate Chair of LCRED and a member of the Environment and Natural Resources Committee.

LCRED’s jurisdiction includes the Department of Labor and the Department of Economic and Community Development. Within these departments are the Office of Professional and Financial Regulation, Maine State Housing Authority, the Finance Authority of Maine (FAME), and the Maine Office of Tourism. Throughout her time on the committee, the legislature has cleaned up waste and abuse at the Maine State Housing Authority, reformed workers’ compensation laws to reduce litigation and create more predictability for injured workers and employers and created a mechanism for evaluating economic development programs.

Senator Volk is best known recently for having successfully championed legislation to help victims of human trafficking.

In addition to her legislative service, Senator Volk is active in the local community. She serves as a member of the Worship and Kids City Welcome teams at The Rock Church. She also served as the Board Secretary of the Root Cellar for many years and is a current charter member of the board of directors for Maine Connections Academy, a statewide public charter school.

Senator Volk resides in Scarborough with her husband, Derek, the President of Volk Packaging Corporation, a third-generation family business. They have four children.

What Would Henry Do?

Today on our little planet, we live in bewildering times. We’re essentially faced with this question: what should we be thinking, saying and doing about the challenges bearing down upon our lives? Answers can be hard to come by. Yet we, the community of Thoreau Farm, believe we have to search for them. So we wondered, if Henry David Thoreau were alive today, what would HE think, what HE say, what would HE do?

Author of The Speaker’s Edge: The Ultimate Go-To Guide for Locating and Landing Lots of Speaking Gigs (Maven House Press), The Expert’s Edge: Become the Go-To Authority that People Turn to Every Time (McGraw-Hill), and five other books, Ken Lizotte and his team transform consultants, entrepreneurs, business experts, attorneys and professional services professionals and their firms into “thoughtleaders,” thereby separating them the competitive pack.

A Certified Management Consultant (CMC), Ken speaks frequently at national and local business events including annual appearances at Harvard and the Concord Festival of Authors. From 2000-2005, he served as chapter president of IMC New England, followed by a term on the national board of IMC USA. He is a member of the CEO Club of Boston and the Association of Management Consulting Firms, a graduate of Alan Weiss’s Million Dollar Consulting College and the pro bono President of the Thoreau Farm Trust.

A thoughtleader in his own right, Ken has been interviewed by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune Magazine, Newsweek, Financial Times, Investors’ Business Daily, National Public Radio, CBS-TV, Writer’s Digest Magazine, The Boston Globe, to name just a few. He has published hundreds of articles including blogs and columns for the American Management Association and Boston Magazine. He’s a co-founder of the National Writers Union.
