NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, New Hanover County hereby approves the Memorandum of Agreement Between the State of North Carolina and Local Governments on Proceeds Relating to the Settlement of Opioid Litigation, and any subsequent settlement funds that may come into North Carolina as a result of the opioid crisis.

WHEREAS, the State of North Carolina (the “State”), North Carolina counties and municipalities, and their people have been harmed by misconduct committed by certain entities that engage in or have engaged in the manufacture, marketing, promotion, distribution , or dispensing of an opioid analgesic (“Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Participants”); and WHEREAS, certain North Carolina counties and municipalities, through their counsel, and the State, through its Attorney General, are separately engaged in ongoing investigations, litigation and settlement discussions seeking to hold Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Participants accountable for the damage caused by their misconduct; and WHEREAS, the State and the Local Governments share a common desire to abate and alleviate the impacts of the misconduct described above throughout North Carolina and in its local communities; and WHEREAS, while the Local Governments and the State recognize the sums which may be available from the aforementioned litigation will likely be insufficient to fully abate the public health crisis caused by the opioid epidemic, they share a common interest in dedicating the most resources possible to the abatement effort; and WHEREAS, settlements resulting from the investigations and litigation with Johnson & Johnson, AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal Health, and McKesson are anticipated to take the form of a National Settlement Agreement; and WHEREAS, this Memorandum of Agreement (“MOA”) is intended to facilitate compliance by the State and by the Local Governments with the terms of the National Settlement Agreement and, to the extent appropriate, in other settlements related to the opioid epidemic reached by the state of North Carolina; and WHEREAS, North Carolina’s share of settlement funds from the National Settlement Agreement will be maximized only if all North Carolina counties, and municipalities of a certain size, participate in the settlement; and WHEREAS, the National Settlement Agreement will set a default allocation between each state and its political subdivisions unless they enter into a state-specific agreement regarding the distribution and use of settlement amounts (a “State-Subdivision Agreement”); and WHEREAS, this MOA is intended to serve as such a State-Subdivision Agreement under the National Settlement Agreement; and WHEREAS, the aforementioned investigations and litigation have caused some Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Participants to declare bankruptcy, and it may cause additional entities to declare bankruptcy in the future; and Board of Commissioners - June 22, 2021 ITEM: 4 - 2 - 3 4 WHEREAS, this MOA is also intended to serve as a State-Subdivision Agreement under resolutions of claims concerning alleged misconduct in manufacture, marketing, promotion, distribution, or dispensing of an opioid analgesic entered in bankruptcy court that provide for payments (including payments through a trust) to both the State and North Carolina counties and municipalities and allow for the allocation between a state and its political subdivisions to be set through a state-specific agreement (“Bankruptcy Resolutions”); and WHEREAS, specifically, this MOA is intended to serve under the Bankruptcy Resolution concerning Purdue Pharma L.P. as a statewide abatement agreement, and under this MOA, a statewide abatement agreement is a type of State-Subdivision Agreement. Statement of Agreement The parties hereto agree as follows: A.

Relationship of this MOA to other agreements and resolutions. All Parties acknowledge and agree the National Settlement Agreement will require a Local Government to release all its claims against the Settling Defendants to receive Opioid Settlement Funds. All Parties further acknowledge and agree based on the terms of the National Settlement Agreement, a Local Government may receive funds through this MOA only after complying with all requirements set forth in the National Settlement Agreement to release its claims. This MOA is not a promise from any Party that any National Settlement Agreement or Bankruptcy Resolution will be finalized or executed. C. Payment of Litigating and Non-Litigating Parties No Party engaged in litigating the MDL Matter shall receive a smaller payment than a similarly situated non-litigating Party, other than as based on the Allocation Proportions in Exhibit G or based on the eligibility criteria for payments from the County Incentive Fund as provided by Section G below.

Every Local Government receiving Opioid Settlement Funds shall create a separate special revenue fund, as described below, that is designated for the receipt and expenditure of the Opioid Settlement Funds. 2.

T he funding amount is calculated using a sliding scale, based on funds spent on Public Assistance and I ndividual Assistance in that disaster. U nfortunately, the demand for miga o n f unding o-en exceeds the amo unt o f available funding allo cated to a parcular Hazard Migaon Grant Program declared disaster. I n Hurricane Florence H MGP and H urricane Dorian H M G P, the county applied o n behalf o f homeo wners voluntarily seeking to be bought out or have their home elevated to reduce the risk of future flooding losses. O ccasionally, when an elevaon is no t technically feasible o r cost eff ecve, a project can be re-worked as a migaon construcon. I n a migaon co nstrucon, the o riginal home is demolished, a nd a new elevated structure is constructed. D ue to technical, program and co st eff ecveness requirements, this type o f project is used infrequently in N C . A-er determining that the original elevaon of a R iver Ro ad property would not be c o st -eff ecve, N C D P S staff worked directly with the homeo wner to develo p a migaon reco nstrucon strategy/pro ject. U nder the proposed plan, the exisng home wo uld be demolished, and a Ma nuf actured Housing U nit (MH U ) wo uld be placed o n an elevated foundaon. T he pro posed budget is $179,784, split $149,784 of f ederal funds f o r construco n and $30,000 of state funds used for pre/post construcon acvies.

Former Commissioner Woody White served as the JLUS Policy Committee representative for New Hanover County. We kindly request that the County appoint a new elected representative to the MOTSU Intergovernmental Council (MIC). The New Hanover County representative is expected to represent the interests of the County, its municipalities, and the broader region on a range of matters that come before the MIC, including land use, transportation, and public safety as they relate to impacts to or from MOTSU’s military operations. The representative will join other elected officials from the region on the MIC, including from Brunswick County, Boiling Spring Lakes, Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, Leland, and Southport. The MOTSU commander serves as an ex-officio member. The MIC is expected to meet approximately 1-2 times per year, and additionally if needed. The MIC operates as an informal committee and formal terms are not established for members, so the County may appoint its representative for a specified term or indefinitely. At the start of the pandemic, the JLUS Policy Committee was transitioning from a temporary committee established in conjunction with a study funded by a grant from the Department of Defense to a more permanent committee as recommended by the study. The Cape Fear Council of Governments administered the initial JLUS grant and is now administering a smaller grant to facilitate implementation of some of the study’s recommendations. I am happy to answer any additional questions you or any of the commissioners may have about this requested appointment or about the MOTSU Intergovernmental Council.

Crowell Julia Olson-Boseman, Chair Clerk to the Board of Commissioners Board of County Commissioners Board of Commissioners - June 22, 2021 ITEM: 14- 3 - 1 American Rescue Plan Overview New Hanover County will receive $45,543,632 from the American Rescue Plan, which was signed into law by President Biden on March 11. The funds must be obligated by Dec. 31, 2024, and New Hanover County has developed a draft framework to utilize these funds over the next three years to strengthen our community. The Board of Commissioners approved the initial framework at its April 5 board meeting. This framework reflects an updated staff recommendation following the May 11 release of Treasury’s Rules and Guidance for the funds. Broadband Connectivity - $5,760,000 The Congressional language permits using the funds for broadband purposes, so the county proposes the following: Broadband Access: A program to connect around 8,000 homes to broadband, focusing on households with children who qualify for Medicaid or Food and Nutrition benefits, for two years in order to increase access and affordability to reliable high-speed internet for students and families. ($5,760,000) Business and Employment Assistance - $4,210,000 The legislation allows for assistance to businesses and nonprofits. New Hanover County’s leisure and hospitality sectors were particularly hard hit during the pandemic and the county proposes using funds for the following: Business Assistance: Business grants, scaled in size based on a business’ number of employees, focused on the retail, service, leisure and hospitality sectors and child care facilities. ($2,500,000) Nonprofit Assistance: Grants to nonprofits that have been negatively impacted and were not able to continue operations at some point during the pandemic. ($700,000) Job Training: Two jobs programs, to be administered in partnership with Step Up Wilmington, to include a six-week paid job training and placement program for up to 200 people with a particular focus on the local film industry, and a six-month paid internship and job placement for an additional 10 to 20 people to develop long-term skills and employment. Includes administrative expenses equaling 5 percent of the programs’ cost. ($900,000) Apprenticeship program: Administered by the Chamber of Commerce, to provide two years of tuition expenses for 10 students through Cape Fear Community College. ($110,000) Housing - $3,600,000 The legislation allows assistance to households who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, so the county proposes to use funds for the following: Mortgage Assistance: Provide assistance to homeowners who are in arrears on mortgages because of impacts from COVID-19. This would be in addition to the $7 million Emergency Rental Assistance Program that is currently underway through the county. ($3,000,000) Board of Commissioners - June 22, 2021 ITEM: 14- 4 - 1 Workforce Rental Housing Assistance: A pilot project to provide residents who qualify under workforce housing guidelines – 60 percent to 120 percent of area median income – by providing direct payments to landlords. ($600,000) Physical and Mental Health - $6,775,506 The well-being and mental health of children, students and seniors suffered during the pandemic and the legislation allows local governments to use funds to mitigate the public health impact of the pandemic. The county proposes to use funds as outlined below to help address these issues and provide long-term positive impacts. With the exception of the infant and toddler initiatives, the intention is to fold the services into the county’s continuation budget beginning in Fiscal Year 2023-24. Mental Health in Schools: Ensure access at each public school to mental health counselors through the county’s Health and Human Services Department. ($3,156,039) Mental Health for Seniors: Establish mental health counselors and a mobile health outreach team based at the Senior Resource Center to serve our county’s older adults. ($332,215) Virtual Outreach Position: Based at the Senior Resource Center, the position develops and maintains virtual programs for the SRC, which allows broader reach and service delivery. ($86,406) School Nurses: Reclassify two school nurses into school nurse leads and provide one school nurse supervisor through the county’s Health and Human Services Department, in addition to the school nurses that the county already provides at each school. ($211,892) Afterschool Transportation: Providing New Hanover County Schools students with transportation needs for afterschool and tutoring programs ($1,200,000) Health Educator: A health educator position. ($136,670) Senior Resource Center: A congregate site in southern New Hanover County for the Senior Resource Center for meal distribution and social interaction. It also provides for enhanced meal distribution at the SRC’s existing sites. ($436,790) Senior Resource Center: To cover the costs of providing transportation to seniors for two years. ($223,500) Infant and Toddler Mental Health: Provide two years of recovery-related mental health services for families with infants and toddlers through five county staff positions at Health and Human Services. ($891,994) Mental Health Scholarships: Provide 10 scholarships for students to receive degrees or certifications in childhood mental health, with the program administered by Smart Start. ($100,000) Infrastructure and Emergency Management - $11,336,567 Congressional language explicitly allows the American Rescue Plan allocations for water and sewer projects. Given Emergency Management’s role in the pandemic, it appears eligible for funding as well. The county proposes to use funds in the following ways: Stormwater Services: Cover and pay for stormwater utility costs, not including debt and reserve funds, in the unincorporated county for fiscal year 2021-22. The county anticipates assessing full fees beginning in fiscal year 2022-23. ($3,017,567) Board of Commissioners - June 22, 2021 ITEM: 14- 4 - 2 Water & Sewer: • Future water and sewer extensions to aid in responsible growth and support the creation of affordable housing in New Hanover County. The intention is to lower development costs to provide affordable housing. ($3,535,000) • Bill assistance program ($500,000) • Blue Clay Business Park water and sewer infrastructure to increase economic development opportunities in this area. ($3,600,000) • To extend water and sewer to Eden Village, which is being established to address chronic homelessness in the community. ($250,000) Homeless Sheltering: Reimburse nonprofits that provided non-congregate sheltering during the pandemic and were denied reimbursements from FEMA. ($370,000) Personal Protective Equipment: Replenish the county’s PPE stock to ensure adequate supplies for any future needs. ($64,000) Essential County Employees - $5,631,612 The American Rescue Plan allows for “premium pay” for public employees who provided essential government services, so the county is proposing to use funds in the following ways: Employee Pay: • Provide employee premium pay in fixed dollar amounts based on an employee’s length of service during the pandemic and full- or part-time status. This is in recognition of county staff who have remained on the frontlines, continued important public services, and ensured residents received the help they needed at a time when it was critical. ($5,284,811) • Provide additional premium pay for employees working directly in the vaccine response to compensate them for their dedication, long hours and constant work in vaccinating our community and saving lives. ($346,801) Reserve and Administration - $8,230,007 The legislation appears to allow the county to set aside funds as a reserve for potential future allowable expenses as well as funds to administer and provide reports as needed on the use of the funds. The county proposes the following reserve funds for this purpose: • A reserve fund for future needs. ($5,960,007) • A reserve fund for administration and reporting, established at 5 percent of the total amount received. ($2,270,000) Total Amount of Funding Outlined in the County’s Plan: $45,543,632 Board of Commissioners - June 22, 2021 ITEM: 14- 4 - 3 Section 1: Details of Budget Amendment Strategic Focus Area:Strong Financial Performance Strategic Objective(s):Proactively manage the county budget Decrease Increase Total 329,931$ 329,931$ -$ 329,931$ 329,931$ Decrease Increase Total -$ 329,931$ 329,931$ -$ 329,931$ 329,931$ $ 9,163,400 $ 9,493,331 Section 2: Explanation Section 3: Documentation of Adoption Adopted, this 22nd day of June, 2021. (SEAL) ATTEST: Kymberleigh G. Crowell, Clerk to the Board This ordinance shall be effective upon its adoption. BA 21-082 will increase general fund appropriated fund balance to transfer funds to the American Rescue Plan Program Fund. This BA is to pay for bonuses to county employees that are outside of the US Department of Treasury guidance. As defined in the Interim Final Guidance provided by the US Department of the Treasury, only employees who were involved in regular in-person interactions are considered performing essential work and it further limits the amount of premium pay an individual may receive. As such, those individuals who were teleworking full-time without interacting with the public or coworkers would not qualify for premium pay paid by ARPA funds, and the bonus amounts that would take an individuals premium pay above the limit noted in the guidance cannot be paid by ARPA funds. To ensure those employees also receive a bonus for their service, a general fund appropriation must be made to pay for that expense. BE IT ORDAINED by the Board of County Commissioners of New Hanover County, North Carolina, that the following Budget Amendment(s) be made to the annual budget ordinance for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2021.

Board of Commissioners - June 22, 2021 ITEM: 17 New Hanover County ADOPTED: 06/22/2021 SUBJECT: Investment Policy I. INVESTMENT POLICY SCOPE This policy applies to all financial assets of the Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Fund (Memorandum No. 21-001) and the New Hanover County Revenue Stabilization Fund (Memorandum No. 21-002). These funds are accounted for in the County's Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. Each fund's portion of total cash and investments is summarized by fund type in the balance sheet as equity or deficit in cash and investments. II. OBJECTIVES Funds of the County will be invested in accordance with North Carolina General Statute 159-30 Cash Management and Investment Policy and written administrative procedures. The County's investments shall be undertaken in a manner that (1) seeks to ensure the preservation of capital in the overall portfolio, (2) provides for sufficient liquidity to meet the cash needs of the County's Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Fund and the New Hanover County Revenue Stabilization Fund, (3) attain a fair market rate of return. Cash management functions will be conducted in such a manner as to ensure that adequate funds will always be available to meet the County's financial obligations and to always provide the maximum amount of funds available for investment. It is the County’s full intent, at the time of purchase, to hold all investments until maturity to ensure the return of all invested principal dollars. However, economic or market conditions may change, making it in the County’s best interest to sell or trade a security prior to maturity. III. RESPONSIBILITY In accordance with N.C. General Statutes, the Finance Officer is charged with the responsibility of cash management and investment and has delegated this duty to the Investment Manager. Such delegation shall not relieve the Finance Director of responsibility for all transactions undertaken. The Investment Manager is responsible for investment decisions and activities and shall develop and maintain written administrative procedures for the operation of the cash management and investment program, consistent with N.C. Statutes and these policies. The standard of prudence to be used by the Investment Manager shall be the "Prudent Investor" Rule, which states, "Investments shall be made with judgment and care, under circumstances then prevailing, which persons of prudence, discretion and intelligence exercise in the management of their own affairs, not for speculation, but for investment, considering the probable safety of their capital as well as the probable income to be derived." This standard of prudence shall be applied in the context of managing the overall portfolio. Board of Commissioners - June 22, 2021 ITEM: 17- 1 - 1 IV. ETHICS AND CONFLICTS OF INTEREST To avoid the appearance of potential conflict of interest or favoritism to a particular bank or broker, the Investment Manager or any delegate employee who has investment responsibilities shall make full disclosure to the Finance Director of any relationship or dealings with any financial institution that has business dealings with the County. This disclosure need not include normal banking or brokerage relationships that are at normal market rates and conditions available to the general public. Investment officials shall be familiar with N.C. General Statutes and County policy regarding gifts and favors and shall act accordingly. V. STATUTORY AUTHORIZATION The County will invest only in securities authorized by North Carolina General Statutes pertaining to local government and restricts the purchase of securities to the highest possible ratings whenever particular types of securities are rated. The Finance Director may elect to further limit the County’s investment security authority. The legal limitations of local government investments are defined in N.C.G.S. 159-30. Accordingly, the following classes of securities are indicative of the investments utilized by New Hanover County: i. Obligations of the United States or obligations fully guaranteed both as to principal and interest by the United States. ii. Obligations of the Federal Financing Bank, the Federal Farm Credit Bank, the Bank for Cooperatives, the Federal Intermediate Credit Bank, the Federal Land Banks, the Federal Home Loan Banks, the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, the Federal National Mortgage Association, the Government National Mortgage Association, the Federal Housing Administration and the Farmers Home Administration. iii. Obligations of the State of North Carolina. iv. Bonds and notes of any North Carolina local government or public authority, subject to such restrictions as the Secretary of the Local Government Commission may impose. v.

ADMINISTRATIVE RESTRICTIONS In addition to the previously noted limitations on appropriate securities, New Hanover County's investment activities are further restricted in the following manner: i. It is the policy of New Hanover County to diversify its investment portfolio. Assets held shall be diversified to eliminate the risk of loss resulting from the over concentration of assets in a specific maturity, a specific issuer or a specific class of securities. Diversification shall be determined and revised periodically by the Investment Manager. ii. New Hanover County recognizes that investment risks can result from issuer defaults, market price changes or various technical complications leading to temporary illiquidity. Portfolio diversification is employed to minimize default risk. No individual investment transaction shall be undertaken that jeopardizes the capital position of the overall portfolio. In the event of a default by a specific issuer, the Investment Manager shall review and, if appropriate, proceed to liquidate securities having comparable credit risks. The investment of a single issuer shall not exceed twenty percent (20%) of the total portfolio at the time of investment. iii. Portfolio maturities shall be staggered to avoid undue concentration of assets of a specific maturity. Maturities selected shall provide for stability of income and reasonable liquidity. No investment shall be made in any security with a maturity greater than ten (10) years from the date of purchase. VII. SELECTION OF SECURITIES The Investment Manager will determine which instruments shall be purchased and sold and the desired maturity date(s) that are in the best interest of the County. The selection of an instrument will involve the evaluation of, but not be limited to, the following factors: i. Cash flow projections and requirements. ii. Current market conditions. iii. Overall portfolio balance and makeup. VIII. CUSTODY AND SAFEKEEPING OF SECURITIES New Hanover County will maintain a third-party safekeeping account for all investments. Transactions should be processed on a delivery versus payment basis. IX. INTERNAL CONTROLS The Finance Director is responsible for establishing a system of internal controls. These controls are designed to prevent losses of public funds arising from fraud, employee error, misrepresentation by third parties or imprudent actions by County employees. X. REPORTING The Investment Manager shall submit a monthly investment report to the Finance Director. The report shall include a general description of the portfolio in terms of investment securities, maturities, yields and other features. The report will show investment earnings for the month and fiscal year-to-date, including the annualized earned yield percentage for the portfolio. The report will compare actual investment earnings with budgeted earnings. Board of Commissioners - June 22, 2021 ITEM: 17- 1 - 3 § 159-30. Investment of idle funds. a.

Included is a summary of revenues and expenditures as recorded by the County for the General, Debt Service, Environmental Management, and Fire Services Funds. This information is provided to help keep you abreast of the financial status of the County on a regular basis throughout the fiscal year. Data provided by fund includes: • Actual revenues and expenditures for the previous fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 and June 30, 2019; • Budget revenues and expenditures for the current fiscal year ending June 30, 2021; • Actual revenues and expenditures as of the end of the quarter for select fiscal years; • Percentage of actual revenues/expenditures received/spent for the same period the previous fiscal years; • Percentage of budget revenues/expenditures received/spent for the current fiscal year; and • Graphical comparison of actual amounts as a percent of budget for all fiscal years presented. GENERAL FUND HIGHLIGHTS: As the chart highlights, many revenues are not received, nor expenses paid, evenly throughout the year. • Ad valorem tax collections through the third quarter are approximately 97.0% of budgeted amounts which is relatively consistent with the last two years. • Sales taxes are received from the State two and one half months following the month in which they are collected by the vendors across North Carolina. Thus, six months of sales tax has been received through the third quarter and represents 56.9% of budgeted sales tax. This is higher than the two previous year third quarter collections. • Other Taxes exceed prior year collections in both the dollar and in the percentage of collection through the third quarter. As of March 31, 2021, total Other Taxes have exceeded the total budget for the year. This is due to real property transfer taxes being higher than budgeted. • Intergovernmental revenues are significantly higher than prior year in both dollar and collection percentage mainly due to the Emergency Rental Assistance grant received. • Operating expenditures in most County functions are in line with expectations through the third quarter with the human services function and cultural & recreation functions are slightly below expectations. Human services are trending lower partially due to the Emergency Rental Assistance program budgeted in FY21 and culture and recreation is trending lower in part due to lingering effects of COVID and lower utility costs. DEBT SERVICE FUND HIGHLIGHTS: • Ad valorem tax collections through the third quarter generated by the 6.47 cent dedicated tax rate was approximately $22.6 million, which is higher than the last two years. • Debt service is paid from this fund when those payments come due. ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT FUND HIGHLIGHTS: As with the General Fund, many revenues and expenses do not fall evenly throughout the year for Environmental Management. • Charges for Services is lower than prior year at $12.1 million collected through the third quarter. This equates to 62.5% of the budgeted charges for services compared to prior year at 68.8% of total annual charges for services. • Operating expenditures as a percent of budget were 56.5% which is less than prior year at 71.3%. Hurricane expenses, debt service and capital expenses occur when related capital assets are needed and payments are due. FIRE SERVICES FUND HIGHLIGHTS: Again, as with the General Fund, many revenues and expenses do not fall evenly throughout the year for Fire Services: • Collections of ad valorem tax of $10.5 million is relatively consistent with prior year and represent 96.1% of budgeted ad valorem revenue. • Sales taxes are received from the State two and one half months following the month in which they are collected by the vendors across North Carolina. Thus, six months of sales tax has been received through the second quarter and represent 52.2% of budgeted sales tax. • Operating expenses are slightly lower than prior year at $2.7 million, or 70.9% of budgeted expenses, and salaries are fairly consistent with previous year’s expenditures. • Debt service and capital expenses occur when related capital assets are needed and payments are due.

I have dealt with these issues to some extent throughout my career. Now that I have settled in Wilmington as a permanent resident, I would like to contribute my ideas and energy to help make our area's parks(existing and those yet to be established)meet the recreational and spiritual needs of the community and contribute to the quality of life measures that distinguish Wilmington and New Hanover County for both long- term residents and those, like myself,who have selected New Hanover County as the best place to live. I seek membership on the Advisory Board as a means for me to say thank you to a great community and to contribute what I can to its continued expansion and distinction. What areas of concern would you like to see addressed by this committee? Our parks already provide great opportunities for traditional group sports.Those should be maintained and,as needed, enhanced or expanded. My particular interest and focus, however,would be enhancing or expanding the role of parks in conservation,environmental and historical education,and providing increased opportunities for individual mental and physical health.Additionally, I am interested in the appropriate integration of parks with local and area social,artistic and public service activities. Qualifications for serving: The range of my professional activities listed above point to the experiences and skills that I would bring to the position of Advisory Board member. Having served on several conservation boards in the past,and held positions requiring close collaboration and cooperation with state,local and private entities, I am confident of my ability to work effectively with others. My range of conservation and park-related experiences provide me both understanding of and commitment to the goals of parks in 1 recreation,education,and personal fulfillment.Finally, my professional training and conservation-ecological perspective will enable me to contribute to the Advisory Board and to area parks in a manner that I believe will serve the public and add value to our parks and the park experience.

In the 1990s I extended my work to include advising on national parks in El Salvador, Malawi (East Africa),and Tanzania and Zimbabwe, I worked closely with the Navajo nation on land conservation issues, and with villagers in Africa on community-based conservation initiatives. In the early 2000's I served as an assistant to the Assistant Secretary, Department of the Interior, on issues ranging from National Parks to land preservation, including providing financial support and guidance to land conservancies in Maine and elsewhere. In 2006 I joined the staff of the U.S. Fish&Wildlife Service, providing support to community conservation efforts. I retired from the USFWS in 2017. During the span of my professional career I have written extensively on parks, conservation lands, and conservation issues, including dozens of opinion articles in publications such as the WallStreet Journal and the New York Times.
