Many people see the fact that our Grange tends to be dominated by aging population as a sign the Grange is losing relevancy. David Nealley believes otherwise and says, “Senior Power is Maine’s Greatest Natural Resource.” David was born in Bangor, Maine in 1961 and graduated from the University of Southern Maine, with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.
In an effort to resurrect an old family business, Nealley spent another eight years as the General Manger of Snow & Nealley Company, a manufacturer of axes and garden tools. In this position, he received a U.S. Chamber of Commerce Blue Chip Award for his turn-around of the business and was written up in Entrepreneur and Forbes magazines for his niche marketing expertise.
Later on, David worked on a successful referendum initiative for Bangor Historic Track resulting in one of the largest economic developments in Maine, Hollywood Casino. Due to his varied work experience, he has traveled extensively. He is currently serving his third term on the Bangor City Council.
David also worked with the legislature and the Governor, to establish Maine Seniors Day and is the publisher of MAINE SENIORS Magazine. He is scheduled to share his belief and some challenges on Thursday afternoon at State Conference. Old or young, you aren’t going to want to miss this!
