KITTERY, Maine — Gov. Paul LePage is continuing his push to make Maine a business-friendly place by having an “Open for Business” sign put up on a busy stretch of highway at the gateway to the state.
LePage unveiled the new sign Friday under a “Welcome to Maine” sign along Interstate 95 in Kittery near the New Hampshire border. LePage has repeatedly vowed to streamline regulations, make government more responsive to business needs and create jobs.
The Portsmouth Herald reports that LePage was spending much of the day in southern Maine with visits to local businesses before holding a town hall-style meeting in Saco.
