Editorial: LePage mini-mes line up
Paul LePage has done more damage to Maine’s environmental safety net than any governor in the state’s history. The Republican candidates who want to follow him all promise more of the same.

At a debate at Colby College on Monday, all five of those scrambling for the Republican gubernatorial nomination—Mary Mayhew of South China, House Minority Leader Ken Fredette of Newport, Senate Majority Leader Garrett Mason of Lisbon Falls, Senate President Mike Thibodeau of Winterport and businessman Shawn Moody of Gorham–supported LePage’s legacy. That means they want to continue destroying public services, slashing environmental protections, and tearing up our social safety net.

It will take years, maybe decades, to repair the damage done by the LePage Misadministration. Clearly, that restoration will not begin next year if any of the Republican candidates are elected.
