Our Current Mayor Becky A. Brink

Mayor Becky Brink met her husband Bill during undergrad at the University of Maine. Following graduation, they moved to St. Louis to continue their education. In St. Louis, the couple created a long list of what they both wanted in a community to raise a family. Sanford filled their list, so they bought their office on Main Street.

Becky believes being a member of the Sanford community has many benefits- A fantastic school system, well-trained police and fire departments, a great health care system, vibrant places of worship, and a forward-looking government and city manager. She says, "Community is important to both physical and mental well-being for everyone," and that often community is what makes a house feel like home.

Becky wants to continue helping grow a community where the citizens can belong, thrive, and have a stable place to call home. In Becky's eyes no matter what your background or ambitions are, Sanford is a community for you.
