Governor Mills Mourns Passing of Former U.S. Attorney Thomas Delahanty II

April 14, 2021

Governor Janet Mills issued the following statement on the passing of Thomas Delahanty II, former U.S. Attorney for Maine:

“A District Attorney for Androscoggin, Oxford and Franklin Counties and a longtime Superior Court Judge and United States Attorney, Tom Delahanty was a champion of justice. During his time as U.S. Attorney and my time as Attorney General, we worked closely on a range of issues, including the creation of the Maine Opiate Collaborative to combat the state’s opioid epidemic. I respected and admired his intellect, his judgment, and his commitment to protecting and delivering justice under the law for the people of Maine. I will miss him but know that Maine is better off as a result of his service. My thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to his wife, Ruth, and his two sons.”
