Town Manager

Erica E. LaCroix, Town Manager - Greetings! I am so honored to serve as the Town Manager here in Farmington!  I grew up in Mt. Vernon, and I have family here locally.  Growing up we frequented Farmington regularly for its shopping and restaurants, and I even took my driver’s test at the old Fire Station!  In many ways this is like coming home.  I graduated from Maranacook High School and went on to study at Michigan State University where I hold a BS from Michigan State and a Master of Public Administration from Norwich University.  

I am a veteran public servant with more than 25 years at the local and state level with the bulk of my background in Public Works and Law Enforcement.  I began my career in 1995 with the City of Lansing, Michigan as a payroll clerk in the Transportation and Parking Office and worked my way up through the ranks.  I spent 18 years with the City of Lansing, my last ten as the Senior Administrator in the Operations and Maintenance division of the Public Service Department.  In 2013, I accepted a budget and policy analyst position with the Virginia Department of Transportation in Richmond, VA.  I found I wasn’t happy being so far removed from the boots on the ground at the local level though, and after two years I returned to municipal government as the Chief of Administration for the Chesterfield County Sheriff's Office.  In 2018, my husband was relocated to Georgia and that meant a brief hiatus from public service for me.  

In 2020, I received a call from a high school friend encouraging me to apply for the Town Manager position in Winslow, Maine.  I laughed and said that was pretty farfetched!  Three months later I packed up the kids and the pets and moved back home to Maine!  I spent three fantastic years in Winslow, and with the support of the Council we were able to accomplish a lot.  I come to you with a desire to serve, the experience to lead, and a sense of excitement for the future.  I look forward to meeting residents, community leaders and business owners, so stop by for a visit or give me a call!
