AUGUSTA – Under the leadership of Governor LePage, Maine’s economy is improving and finally headed in the right direction. Unemployment is down, businesses are expanding, and new private sector jobs are being created.

We need to make sure our job creators have all the resources they need to continue on this path to greater prosperity.”

Media are encouraged to attend the event.
