AUGUSTA, Maine — Gov. Paul LePage will open a forum on family-run businesses this week in Bangor.

The forum begins Thursday morning at Husson University’s Gracie Theatre.
The event is a 2012 community initiative by the Institute for Family-Owned Business, a nonprofit which has served Maine’s family-owned businesses for 17 years. The public is invited to attend.

The governor says family-owned businesses account for 60 percent of employment and 78 percent of all new jobs in Maine’s economy. He hopes to learn more so steps can be taken to help those businesses succeed.

More about reservations is available at www.fambusiness.org.
