AUGUSTA – Senate President Michael Thibodeau (R-Waldo) has appointed Senator Amy Volk (R-Cumberland) to the Maine Children’s Growth Council and the Child Care Advisory Council, effective immediately.

Maine Children’s Growth Council is a bipartisan council established by statute that is made up of 37 members.

The Child Care Advisory Council is also a bipartisan council established by statute that is made up of 28 members.

Volk. “Children are our most precious resource, as they are our future. I look forward to working with my colleagues on these committees to advise on policies that will best support them and encourage success during their early, most critical years.”
