I’m an American Latino and a Maine resident, and it saddens me to say that Gov. Paul LePage has no respect for the hardworking people of Maine.
He secretly and quietly had murals taken down that strongly represented the hardworking people of Maine (who actually take maybe just a one-week vacation in a year or two, not after working just a few weeks).
What would it have hurt to attend that NAACP ceremony to which he was invited? Instead, he told that group to kiss his butt. And recently, he failed to show up for the honoring of labor leader Cesar Chavez. If that is not a sign of discrimination, what would be?
He was probably too busy packing for that vacation in Jamaica.
Stephen King commented that Gov. LePage is like one of The Three Stooges. At the time, I agreed, but truth is, when I think of The Three Stooges, it puts a smile on my face from ear to ear, remembering how much they made me laugh as a child.
When I think of LePage there is a feeling of anger and shame.
I guess the joke is on me, because I voted for the fool.
