Comments for: New Waterville homeless shelter aims to combat growing problem

  • Anonymous

    It’s inspiring to see what can happen when private citizens contribute to such a great cause. Great proof that Government is not the only answer when it comes to helping the poor and needy. “Faith, hope and charity… but the greatest of these is charity.”

            Would Baltimorians have used the term? We’ll be in Fells Point for a few days and are curious if they use it too.

      So, other than the fact he’s from Waterville, what has LePage got to do with this?  Certainly he can’t claim any credit.  Wonder how much money came from welfare naysayers who constantly moan about the “theft” of their “hard-earned” money.

    Mr Lepage is  bipartisan! He attended the opening of the new home for the Maine democratic party.

      I’m not sure if you’re taking potshots at LePage or the Democrats. Brilliant!

      He is a pillar of the community…..He tries to work with the left, but they seem to not want to work with the right.

        That’s working with the “left”?  More like a left-handed compliment.

      Wow, how nice of him.

  • LePage’s policies will mean the need to open a lot more homeless shelters before it is all said and done.

      I was going to say that, but, you said it better.

    Great job Mr. LePage, we can see that you care..

      He may care but sure doesn’t show it.

    So if people didn’t make donations to help the poor, we wouldn’t be reading this story that makes LePage look like he’s the benefactor here…..How much money did the LePage family contribute?

    helped how? it’s just lip service and a photo-op.

      Photo-op???   Why’d they use an old stock photo?

  • eyevabigun

    Now that its been built, they will come. But are donations going to pay for the day to day operations?

    Our Governor is a man who pretty much sees the world through his own experiences. Domestic abuse issues and the plight of the homeless are real and dear to him as he experienced them as a youth. From his own career he brings his  experience with Mardens as he tried to open new locations -the company was continually met by what he considered barriers to business-over regulation. However- when he is confronted with issues or problems on topics for which he has no past history-that’s when he can get into big trouble. Governor-get some people around you with sound advice that you will take and you’ll look as good as you did today more often.

      Today was only looking good on the surface.  He didn’t support this facility at all except for lip service.

    I’m so touched that he cares a rat’s posterior. Keep up the good work, Guv, and maybe you can fill a few hundred of these shelters all by your lonesome.

    Yeah, and the longer he’s in office the more homeless shelters we’ll need. So, good job Gov.
