Inside the Blaine House Show Gives Mainers More Transparency into LePage Administration

March 21, 2011

Augusta, Maine – A new information-based show highlighting Governor Paul LePage’s initiatives, policy and overall transparency within state government will be available to viewers Tuesday. The show titled Inside the Blaine House is produced by Maine Video on Demand (MaineVOD), which is a Maine video production company that creates local programming with such programs as Inside Maine Business, Inside Maine Health Care and The Local Flavor.

Governor LePage has promised Maine people a more open government and Inside the Blaine House is a way to communicate with citizens about what is going on in the Capitol. The show will focus heavily on policies and initiatives being introduced by the Administration with the goal of giving a clear understanding as to why the policy is being proposed. The Governor, Commissioners and Senior Policy Staff will talk about the issues and Mainers will also have an opportunity to ask them questions as part of the show format. Governor LePage maintains committed to creating jobs in our State and staying true to that theme Inside the Blaine House will feature a segment on businesses throughout Maine.

“This show was created to give Mainers the opportunity to hear about what we’re doing as an Administration,” says Governor LePage. “We talk about the issues and people are encouraged to follow up with their own research or fact finding on the issue. More power to the people.”

The premiere of Inside the Blaine House comes on the heels of Governor LePage’s second Capitol for a Day. On Friday, the Governor visited with several business owners and leaders in York County before concluding at a town hall meeting with an overwhelmingly supportive crowd of nearly three-hundred people. Capitol for a Day was designed as a way for Governor LePage to connect with Maine people as will Inside the Blaine House.

Inside the Blaine House production is funded through advertising sponsorship and is no way paid for by taxpayer dollars. The debut of Inside the Blaine House will be available on www.MaineVOD.com Tuesday, March 22 at 5:00pm. The show will be online for viewing purposes at any time thereafter. Inside the Blaine House will also air on Time Warner Cable’s TWC TV (Channel 9) at 10pm Sunday and rerun several times throughout the week, with a new episode airing every two weeks.
