In response to Irene Lagasse's letter of Sept. 22, how come she is so embarrassed by Gov. LePage's ineloquent speech?
I'm sure, in the instance she mentioned, the governor meant to say "every group of people," not "every people," and simply misspoke.
The governor has done more for this state in his three years in office than 40 years of governors before him. His speech is the language of many Franco Americans who have come here from Canada to work in the mills of the city of Lewiston, have brought their religion and family values, work ethic of hard work and helping others with them.
I am not Franco American, but I work alongside them and would be proud to say I was one of them. Their language doesn't bother me one iota, because I know their hearts are pure gold.
