Gedat confirmed as county treasurer

AUGUSTA — Gov. John Baldacci formally appointed Roy Gedat the new treasurer of Oxford County on Tuesday.

Gedat was nominated by Oxford County Democrats to replace Mary Ann Prue, who served as treasurer for 13 years but resigned due to her decision to move out of the county. Gedat was sworn in by Norway Town Clerk Shirley Boyce on Tuesday morning.

Gedat will serve the remainder of Prue's term, which runs to the end of the year. He has also announced that he intends to run for re-election in November.

After serving from 1985 to 2004 as executive director of the Child Health Center, Gedat became the executive director of the Maine Personal Assistance Services Association and was a national advocacy director for Direct Care Alliance Inc. He currently consults for the latter organization and is in the process of starting up his own home-care-service business.

Gedat graduated from Hofstra University in 1975 with a bachelor's degree in political science and journalism, and also graduated from Boston University School of Social Work with a master's degree.
