Roy values the resilient and enduring character of the Downeast region. The home he lives in is a renovated general store and apartment building that has been in his family since its construction circa 1885. He worked with his parents to preserve this structure and strove to maintain its exterior appearance while modernizing it internally. Likewise, Roy wants to preserve the character of our communities while also generating opportunities for local, organic growth for jobs and families.
