There’s been talk about how the three candidates’ positions will either help or hurt Maine's working families.
Eliot Cutler works for a law firm that specializes in outsourcing Maine jobs to China; no help there.
Paul LePage is on record saying that he can’t pay an outstanding employee more than $10 an hour because she needs public assistance to survive. If this is how he treats his employees, his attitude will not help working families.
Libby Mitchell stood by people facing layoffs by co-sponsoring and passing a bill that stopped penalizing laid-off workers who had earned vacation time on the books. She also supports legislation to keep Maine mills open and give the employees or other businesses the opportunity to buy them if they shut down.
To me the choice is clear: A tireless supporter of working families, Libby Mitchell deserves to be Maine's next governor.
