5 Questions With...

Brett Wickard, Bull Moose


How did you get here?

In 1985, I traveled to New England to visit colleges…. and came up to Maine to visit Bowdoin. I knew Maine was the place for me right away – so I decided to go to school here and never left!

Describe your Maine in three words:

Natural, thoughtful, resolute

If you had just 24 hours left in Maine, what would you do?

Be with family and friends on a hike in Baxter State Park.

Is there anything about Maine you’d change?

I love that our state has a strong “go our own way” streak --- which is awesome for most things – but at times I think we should dial it back in our communities – and encourage our towns to work together with our neighboring towns on more stuff than they currently do.

What makes a true Mainer?

I’ve been here only 27 years, so I’m not sure I’m qualified to answer yet… When I’ve been here a solid 50 years, then I’ll know!
