Some history will be made on Tuesday in
the Maine State House.
Janet Mills of Farmington will become the first woman to serve
as state attorney general when she’s sworn in by Gov. John Baldacci
on Tuesday afternoon. The former legislator and district attorney
defeated two other Democratic candidates to win a legislative
election to the post.
The governor will also swear in Neria Douglass as state auditor,
Matthew Dunlap as secretary of state and David Lemoine as
treasurer. Mills, Dunlap and Lemoine serve two-year terms and
Douglass will serve another a four-year term.
