Governor LePage’s Communications Director Leaving To Spend More Time Trembling And Muttering To Himself At Home

AUGUSTA, Maine — Gov. Paul LePage’s communications director said Wednesday that he will resign from his post effective Feb. 17. Peter Rogers was hired last July to oversee communications for the Republican governor and called the last eight months “a great ride.” He also it was time for him to move on to something else. “I have some irons out there, but I’m not sure exactly what I’ll do,” Rogers said in an interview. Rogers said there has been no acrimony between him and the governor or between him and any senior staff members. He said he had a conversation recently with LePage’s chief of staff John McGough and simply decided it was best to step aside. “All along, this was temporary,” Rogers said. “I was asked to come in and help out and I was happy to do it.” (more at BangorDailyNews)
