First Lady Ann LePage

Maine's First Lady, Ann LePage

Ann LePage became the First Lady of Maine when her husband Paul LePage was sworn into office as Maine’s 74th Governor on January 5, 2011. A Maine native, Ann grew up with a strong work ethic and loyalty to family. She and Governor LePage have been married 29 years, and raised their children in Maine.

Throughout her tenure as First Lady, Ann has been a passionate advocate for military service members, their families and our beloved veterans. Raising awareness for these individuals has been her top priority. She has participated in the Wreaths Across America trip, twice, travelling in 18 wheeler tractor trailers to Arlington National Cemetery to place wreaths on the grave sites of our fallen heroes.

Mrs. LePage was selected as the 2012 Joshua Chamberlain’s Chapter Person of the Year by the First Region Association of the United States Army. Her continued dedication, compassion, untiring efforts and support for veterans, service members and their families has clearly defined her character and reputation since becoming First Lady of Maine.

Ann is currently working with Travis Mills on the Travis Mills Project. Travis, a US Army Staff Sergeant of the 82nd Airborne, was critically injured in April of 2012 while on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan. He is one of only five quadruple amputees in the United States to survive his injuries. Travis has a dream to create a National Recreation Center here in Maine for disabled veterans and their families. This recreation center will provide a place where veterans from across the Nation can get back to nature with activities that will instill the confidence to keep moving forward. The Travis Mills Project is coming to life through the efforts of various groups and individuals and Ann is wholeheartedly committed to do anything she can to make Travis’ dream a reality.

Believing family comes first, First Lady LePage has been a strong supporter of her husband’s public services throughout their married lives. After spending 14 years at Scott Paper Company, and working part-time when her children were young, she is grateful for the opportunity she had to be at home with her children. Her proudest moments are shared with her children in their achievements as successful adults.

Proud to be an American and native daughter of the beautiful State of Maine, Ann LePage is honored to fulfill her role as First Lady of Maine.
