Piscataquis County’s new hire will play big role internet and ski resort issues

The Piscataquis County Economic Development Council has hired a new executive director at a time when big decisions that will affect the county’s future are pending.

Angela Arno, who works as the Maine State Chamber of Commerce’s director of events and programming, starts as executive director on Monday. Former director John Shea departed last month to lead a Kansas nonprofit.

The economic group has chosen a new leader during a pivotal time for development in Piscataquis County. Municipalities and county commissioners are pursuing solutions to spotty internet in different ways, and a proposed ski resort redevelopment project on Big Moose Mountain will soon go to public hearing. Arno will play an important role in facilitating efforts to grow the county’s economic opportunities.
