Ponte Takes the Next Step

Former CCA Warden Joe Ponte has been endorsed by a legislative committee in Maine, part of his confirmation process after being nominated by new Governor Paul LePage. Now, all he needs to be appointed Maine's next secretary of Corrections is approval from the state Senate.

Thankfully though, he'll sell his shares of CCA if confirmed. So I'm sure he won't in any way encourage privatization of the state system....

UPDATE: It's official, the Maine Senate has confirmed former CCA warden Joe Ponte to be Maine's next Commissioner of Corrections. Effing awesome.
