AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine’s governor is taking a break, heading away to Jamaica for a week.

Press Secretary Adrienne Bennett says it’ll be the first break for Gov. Paul LePage since his inauguration in January. She says he’s been working six days a week since then.

LePage is familiar with Jamaica.

While golfing there, he met the father of a boy who returned to Maine to be raised by the LePages. LePage considers the boy a son and has provided for him, even though he was never formally adopted by the LePages.
