AUGUSTA—Governor LePage released the following statement today.

“One of my most important duties is to appoint judges to Maine’s district, superior and supreme judicial courts. The Maine people must know our judges are impartial, objective and committed to a fair and honest judicial process,” stated Governor LePage. “The Maine people have a right to demand the highest qualifications—intelligence, integrity and good moral character—from members of their judicial branch. Their word must mean something. If a judge fails to uphold these standards, then I believe it is my duty to tell you.”
