Seth Goodall, Maine Law ’05, tapped for high-profile SBA job

June 19, 2013

PORTLAND, Maine – President Obama this summer appointed a University of Maine School of Law alumnus and state senator as northeast regional administrator of the Small Business Administration.

Maine State Sen. Seth Goodall, D-Richmond, resigned his Senate seat after the legislative session ended June 19, in order to accept the new job. As regional head of the SBA, Goodall follows in the footsteps of other high-profile Mainers including U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Republican former Secretary of State Charlie Summers. The SBA regional office provides financial assistance and manages program initiatives for an estimated 1.3 million businesses in all six New England states.

Goodall graduated from the University of Maine School of Law in 2005. He was first elected to the Senate District 19 in 2008, representing several towns in Sagadahoc County. Goodall previously owned a landscaping company.

“It is an incredible honor to serve the Obama administration and work with Administrator Mills on growing and strengthening small business. I have a deep appreciation and understanding for the role small business plays in our economy and our communities,” Goodall said in an interview with MaineToday Media. “I look forward to sharing my commitment and utilizing my experience to help the SBA to create jobs and bolster our economy in New England.”
