Downtown Brunswick Association helps carry the message, 'It's All here... All Year'
By Patrick Gabrion, Times Record Business Editor

BRUNSWICK — Downtown Brunswick. It’s lively, diverse and undergoing changes. One of the many organizations deeply involved and at the forefront in keeping the town pointed in the right direction is the Brunswick Downtown Association.

The Times Record recently chatted with Stephanie Slocum, the BDA’s executive director, to talk about the group’s mission, the town’s new branding campaign, the need for more retail locations, and what makes Brunswick’s downtown so special.

Q. Stephanie, first of all, give us a little background about yourself, such as where you grew up, went to school, etc. You told me that you have lived in many different parts of the country, but you are back in the Mid-coast region. Comparisons, thoughts?

A. I am proud to be a multi-generation Maine native, born in Bath and raised in Boothbay Harbor.
