Justin Alfond announces that he'll step down as League director

Justin Alfond, longtime director of the Maine League of Young Voters, is leaving that position. The official job posting for a new state director is up on Craigslist; the organization will accept applications through mid-January, and expects to have the position filled by early spring.

"The Maine League is excited for this transition," Alfond writes in an email to the Phoenix. "A new state director will bring in a new vision, energy and relationships to our work. It will be almost five years when I step down, at the end of the 2008 election, and it is time for a new leader."
As for what Alfond'll get up to, it's still up in the air. "Things will get a lot clearer during the '08 year," he says. But one thing's for certain -- he's not leaving the world of politics and organizing. "I've got the bug," he says.
