This agency is funded mostly by the feds and State of Maine. Unfortunately, their executives are very overpaid - especially when compared to the front line workers who make peanuts. The administration has been in total disarray since the CEO of 30 years left. Lots of infighting and an unwillingness to bring in new blood to help direct the organization in a shrinking govt funding situation.
