PORTLAND, Maine — Former Gov. John Baldacci is joining the law firm of Pierce Atwood as a senior adviser for economic development and government relations.
Baldacci, who served two terms as governor from 2003 to 2011, was a congressman for 12 years and served in the Maine Legislature and Bangor City Council before that. Following his two terms as governor, Baldacci, a Democrat, served in the Obama administration as director of the Department of Defense’s Military Health Care Reform Initiative where he worked for the former Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, Clifford L. Stanley, to conduct a full-scale review and evaluation of military health care and wellness.
“We are delighted to have Gov. Baldacci join us at Pierce Atwood,” said Gloria Pinza, the firm’s managing partner, in a Tuesday release “The governor’s many years of state and national public service as a governor and congressman and his expertise in the energy, healthcare and economic development sectors provide a perspective that will serve our clients well and enhance our regional and national growth.”
According to the release, Baldacci will primarily work out of Pierce Atwood’s Portland office, but will also work in its other New England and Washington, D.C. Offices.
