Lieutenant Governor John Walsh Releases Records

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

Lieutenant Governor John Walsh is releasing his military records to the general public in response to criticism regarding his leadership. Lieutenant Governor Walsh responded to an accusation by the Army Inspector General's report saying he improperly used his position as Adjutant General of the Montana National Guard to solicit fellow officers to join the private group. Walsh responded by making his military records public.

"Well I'm releasing my entire military records. I want the citizens of Montana to be able to see, through my records and all my leadership positions that I had held and the evaluation reports that I have received from my senior leaders while I was serving those positions. I think that's a fair estimate of what kind of leader I am," says Lieutenant Governor Walsh.

During the press conference Walsh said he will not apologize for his actions which pertain to the Montana National Guard.

"And that's why I won't ever apologize for fighting for them or their families. Over the next 9 months Montanan's will be bombarded by a statement that General Chiarelli made questioning my leadership. A statement from somebody who I have met only one time and that was while I was attending a meeting to fight on the state's behalf to keep our Aircraft in the National Guard," says Lieutenant Governor Walsh.

The Lieutenant Governor says these remarks from Vice Chief of Staff of the Army will not distract him from his Senate candidacy

"Well right now I'm continuing to serve the citizens of Montana as lieutenant Governor of the state of Montana. I have also announced that I am going to run for the United States Senate. So I am balancing continuing to serve as lieutenant Governor and running a campaign for the United States Senate," says Lieutenant Governor Walsh.
