AUGUSTA — Gov. Paul LePage on Tuesday announced four nominees to the board of the agency responsible for redevelopment of the former Brunswick Naval Air Station.

Two of the governor’s nominees to the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority are Brunswick residents: Lois Napier Skillings, president and chief executive of Mid Coast Health Services, and John Dorrer, director of labor market analysis and workforce research at Boston-based Jobs for The Future and former acting commissioner of the Department of Labor.

The other two – Daniel Daggett, president of ConSolidated Solutions, and John Shattuck, Tosham’s director of economic and community development – are from Woolwich and Topsham, respectively.

The Legislature’s Joint Standing Committee on Labor, Commerce, Research, and Economic Development is expected to vote on the nominations on Sept. 21.

LePage’s nominees would replace MRRA Chairman Art Mayo of Bath, who submitted his resignation last week; board members Adam Cote of Springvale and Dana Totman of Brunswick, whose terms are expiring, and former MRRA director Charles Spies of Topsham, who resigned almost a year ago.
