AUGUSTA – On Thursday, Governor Paul LePage will visit Androscoggin County as part of the Administration’s Capitol for a Day tour. This will be the twelfth Capitol for a Day since the Governor kicked off the program last year.

Lewiston Regional Technical Center (LRTC) will host this month’s town hall between 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. which is free and open to the public. LRTC is located at 156 East Avenue in Lewiston. A panel consisting of the Governor, several commissioners and the Maine State Treasurer will participate in the meeting where audience members will be encouraged to ask questions.

“I hope Mainers take the time to come to the town hall, ask questions and engage with the people who are working for them. I think people are realizing what our Administration is trying to achieve and they are seeing results,” said Governor LePage. “We are listening to the people of Maine and as a result changing the attitude within government.”

While the Governor is in Androscoggin County he will visit Lewiston’s Geiger Brothers, K & K Excavation, Inc. in Turner, Savage Safe Handling, Inc., Newfab, Inc. and Proctor & Gamble Tambrands all located in Auburn.

The Governor noted, “To build a stronger economy we must listen to our job creators of today. Our business community has the key to unlock Maine’s economic growth potential and this Administration is ready and willing to listen to their needs so we can introduce policies which encourage job creation.”
