Kee honored for service to Bucksport

BUCKSPORT — Former town councilor David Kee was honored at the Sept. 12 Town Council meeting for his 10 years of service on the board.

Kee announced his retirement in July, one year into his three-year term.

“It was time,” Kee said during an interview last week. “I’m going to be 80 years old.”

The retired attorney said he and wife, Paula, want to spend more time in Florida.

However, “Bucksport will always be home,” he said.

During Kee’s recognition at the meeting, Bucksport Town Manager Sue Lessard said, “On behalf of the council, myself and the community, we wanted to say thank you for your 10 years of service as well as your much longer commitment to the community.”

“The fact is you are and have been an important part of the fabric of this community for a very long time,” Lessard said.

Kee said, “My adopted hometown has been good to me for over 50 years. It’s been my honor to serve, thank you so much.”
