ACTIVISM - Peace Action Maine leader leaves

Greg Field, executive director at Peace Action Maine since May 2002, is leaving the state's largest peace organization effective Monday, February 20. He is leaving to work with Sustainable Harvest International, based in Surry, Maine, according to an e-mail from Field.

Group treasurer Sally Breen said "we're all so sad" Field is leaving, but she recognized that "like so many non-profits, we just can't pay him what he's worth."

She said Field volunteered to serve on the group's board, and to be its representative to the national Peace Action group, based near Washington, DC.

Breen also said present staffers Jessica Eller and Debbie Atwood have been assigned more work hours and have been asked to take over Field's duties, on a "temporary basis," as a "trial" until a board meeting in March, where the group will decide what, if anything, needs to change.
