Anaconda Teacher and Regents Chair Appointed Lieutenant Governor

Posted: Updated:

Today in Anaconda, Governor Steve Bullock held a press conference at Anaconda High School to announce the 31st Lieutenant Governor of Montana.

Meet Angela McLean, a teacher at Anaconda High School and Chair of the Montana Board of Regents, who will now be the Lieutenant Governor of the Treasure State, following John Walsh's appointment last week as U.S. Senator.

"I was surprised, I was excited, honored, and humbled, and that was in a nutshell my initial reaction." said McLean.

A native of Twin Bridges, a wife and mother of two children, McLean becomes the first classroom teacher to serve as Lieutenant Governor. She was named "Best High School Teacher" by the Montana Standard in 2003, and according to Governor Bullock was a decision he felt was right.

"As and educator, as a parent, Angela has really dedicated her life to public service and I think she can make and will make a meaningful difference for our state."

McLean earned her masters of arts in curriculum and instruction from the University of Montana and says education is important to her and hopes she can bring her skills to the state level.

"I know have to opportunity to impact the lives of students in all 56 counties and I look forward to that challenge, I think I am equal to the task and I look forward to working with Governor Bullock in making sure that we can accomplish his education agenda on behalf of those students I just left." added McLean.

Board of Regents Vice Chair will take over for her position as she did officially resign, and a new teacher will be in place of her position at Anaconda high school.

Now John Walsh's resignation was official as of last night, and this morning here in Anaconda at 7:30 Angela McLean was sworn in as Lieutenant Governor of the state and tomorrow John Walsh will be sworn in as U.S. Senator in Washington D.C.
