AUGUSTA – Governor Paul R. LePage announced today he has relieved Brigadier General James D. Campbell of his command as Adjutant General of the Maine National Guard and commissioner of the Department of Veterans and Emergency Management.

“Based on an internal review of General Campbell, I have lost faith in his ability to lead Maine’s soldiers and airmen who serve so proudly in the National Guard,” said Governor LePage. “Effective immediately, I have relieved him of his command.”

The Governor has named Brigadier General Gerard F. Bolduc as acting Adjutant General.
