One of Governor Jim Douglas’ most trusted aides is leaving state government.
Neale Lunderville holds the title of secretary of civil and military affairs, and he’s also a top political adviser to the governor.
The governor’s office says Lunderville will be leaving at the end of the legislative session to take a job in the private sector.
Lunderville was campaign manager in the 2002 election, when Douglas won the governor’s office.
Lunderville was campaign chairman in 2004 and has served on the gubernatorial staff during nearly all of Douglas’ tenure.
