AUGUSTA – Governor Paul R. LePage has announced he will hold a town hall meeting on Monday, May 11 in Skowhegan to answer questions about his comprehensive Tax Reform and Relief Plan.

The town hall meeting will be held from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday in the auditorium at Skowhegan Area High School, 61 Academy Circle, Skowhegan.

Governor has been traveling all over the state to speak directly to the Maine people about his tax reform plan, which is a bold initiative to cut taxes by $300 million and make Maine a more attractive place for young families, retirees, veterans and job creators. He has held town hall meetings in Westbrook, Saco, Auburn, Belfast, Bangor, Ellsworth, Machias and Presque Isle.

Most recently, Governor LePage asked Legislative leadership for bipartisan support for his bill to amend the Maine Constitution to eliminate the State income tax.

Only Republican leaders have stepped up to endorse it. Democrat leaders are opposed to eliminating the income tax.
