M. Pendleton: LePage is keeping his promises


My wife and I voted for Paul LePage for governor of Maine. At times, we have thought that he should think about what he is going to say before he says it; nevertheless, we like him.

One of the strong points he has exhibited while in office is that he is trying to follow up on the promises he made during the campaign.

LePage never stated that, as he attempted to correct the fiscal mismanagement that has taken place for more than three decades, it wouldn’t come without some real sacrifice, or that it would leave us with a warm, fuzzy feeling.

The reality of the present points to one conclusion: that the state’s economy is a train wreck. That is the bottom line.

No one can accuse Paul LePage of being a poll-driven candidate.
