Capitol for a Day is designed to enable business leaders and community members to engage with the Governor and discuss issues that are important to them. During his inaugural speech the Governor promised he would re-introduce the “Capitol for a Day” program which Governor McKernan began during his Administration.

"Capitol for a Day” was created by Governor McKernan in an effort to bring the “two Maines” together after his 1986 election. Governor McKernan and members of his Cabinet would conduct the business of state government in a community rather than Augusta. Governor LePage plans to continue the tradition by attending monthly town hall meetings in one of Maine’s sixteen counties and visiting businesses throughout Maine. The Office of the Governor will be working with local business owners, members of Chambers of Commerce and Rotary Clubs to schedule the “Capitol for a Day” program in towns and cities.

Each month one of Maine’s sixteen counties will host a Capitol for a Day.
