LePage revives McKernan’s Capitol for a Day

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine — Gov. Paul LePage is reviving an old program to bring Maine’s capitol to towns and cities across the state.

On Friday, four Portland businesses will be the focus of the governor’s Capitol for a Day. He’ll start with a tour of National Semiconductor and then visit Barber Foods, Harbor Fish Market and Preble Street Resource Center.

The business tours will be followed by a town hall meeting in Westbrook at the Performing Arts Center, where the audience will be given the opportunity to submit questions to the governor. Doors will open at 5:15 p.m.

During his inaugural speech, LePage promised to re-introduce the Capitol for a Day program, which Gov. John McKernan began during his administration in an effort to bring the “two Maines” together after his 1986 election.
