AUGUSTA – The Maine Municipal Association is pleased to announce that Dan Tremble, Bangor city councilor, has been appointed to fill a vacancy on the Association’s Executive Committee, which directs the member-organization’s long-range planning, fiscal management, and policy development efforts.

The vacancy occurred when Sarah Dubay, a member of the Bangor City Council, passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. The decision to appoint Tremble came easily to James Gardner, Jr. Easton town manager and MMA immediate past president, as the Bangor native brings over two decades of local government experience to the Association.

Tremble first served on the city council from 1999-2005 and was elected to the Office of Penobscot County Treasurer from 2006-18, before his reelection in November 2020 as Bangor Council chair. He received a degree in public administration from the University of Maine, owns and operates a local market and restaurant, previously served as the chair of the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce and is the current Penquis board chair. His term on MMA’s Executive Committee will expire on Dec. 31, 2022.
