ORONO — Maine Attorney General Janet Mills will visit the University of Maine on Thursday Oct. 29 as part of the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center Distinguished Maine Policy Fellow Program.

Mills will spend the day at UMaine, meeting with students, faculty members and staff members.  A Farmington resident, Mills is a former Assistant Attorney General, District Attorney and attorney in private practice.  She was elected four times to the Maine House of Representatives before becoming Maine’s attorney general in December 2008.

The Distinguished Maine Policy Fellows Program, which began in the spring of 2006, brings Maine elected officials and senior policymakers to UMaine for intensive one-day programs through which they can learn more about UMaine, the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center, and the work of the university’s faculty members and students. It is also intended to provide opportunities for UMaine students to have access to high-level public officials, through whom they can learn more about government and the development of public policy.
