It's official! Seth Poplaski is the 2011 Young & Free Maine Spokesperson

It's official! Seth Poplaski, 24 years old, from Bangor is the 2011 Young & Free Maine Spokesperson for Maine's Credit Unions. A surprise party was held Friday and with the help of a crowd of more than 100 enthusiastic friends, family and Maine Credit Union representatives, Seth was completely surprised and accepted the job. Take a look at this teaser video!

We'll have a full video of the surprise event up by early next week.

All three finalists, Becca, Monique and Seth put together awesome campaigns to rally voters. Seth won the tight race after an intense competition with his fellow finalists, Becca Hodgdon of Bangor and Monique Pelletier of Bangor. The two runners up will each receive an iPod Touch for their hard work.

While Seth is currently employed at the Texas Roadhouse, he will be now trading in his cocktail shaker for some great new gear, including a Mac Book Pro and HD video camera—not to mention use of a new car for his year as our Young & Free Spokesperson.

We'll keep you posted right here on the blog over the next week as Seth gets settled in and takes over.

Welcome aboard Seth!
