AUGUSTA – On Thursday, Governor Paul LePage will visit Hancock County as part of the Administration’s Capitol for a Day program. This will be the tenth Capitol for a Day since the Governor kicked off the program in February.
“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, bringing their ideas back to Augusta and doing what we can to improve government.”
While the Governor is in Hancock County he will visit Verso’s Bucksport mill, Maine Maritime Academy in Castine and Hinckley Yachts in Trenton. Maine’s Wild Blueberry Commission members will also have the opportunity to meet with Governor LePage in Ellsworth prior to the town hall meeting.
The Governor noted, “The reason I visit these businesses is to try to get a handle on what we can do in government to help build our economy. It’s been a long time since job creators have had someone in Augusta listening.”
Ellsworth Middle School will host this month’s town hall between 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. which is free and open to the public. 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.
