AUGUSTA – On Wednesday, Governor Paul R. LePage will visit Penobscot County for a town hall meeting to answer questions about his comprehensive tax reform and relief plan. This is the second town hall of seven to be held across the State.

Husson University at Gracie Theatre in Bangor will host the town hall from 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4, which is free and open to the public. Gracie Theatre is on the Husson University campus, 1 College Circle, Bangor.

Governor LePage and Jonathan LaBonte, director of the Office of Policy and Management, will participate in the meeting. 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 us,” said Governor LePage. “The Maine people are realizing what our Administration is trying to achieve, and they are seeing results. My plan puts $300 million back into Mainers pockets, which will help us bring prosperity to our families and businesses across the State.”

There are five more town halls expected on the following dates (one more will be added in Southern Maine). More information regarding specific locations will be available in the coming days.

March 11 Lewiston
March 19 Presque Isle
