I watched in absolute disbelief this past week as Maine politics was immortalized on YouTube and in the news.
I believe that someone who chooses to run for governor should have high ideals, solid plans and a genuine desire to do good for the state of Maine. Paul LePage seems to have none of these. In the past week, I have seen him lie outright about his ownership of land, his paying property taxes in Maine and Florida. I have seen video of him yelling obscenities at reporters and the latest of him telling our president to “go to hell.” He appears to be an arrogant, intemperate ideologue who doesn’t care a whit about Maine or its people.
I hope that Mainers, of all parties, consider their votes very carefully this fall. What are you voting for — the next person up at the Comedy Club or someone who can really work constructively for the benefit of us all.
LePage has already shown he’s not the person for the job.
