LEWISTON — Got questions for the governor? Comments, suggestions?
Here's your chance. On Thursday, Gov. Paul LePage will be back in his hometown as part of the administration's Capitol for a Day tour. It will be the 12th Capitol for a Day since the governor kicked off the program last year.
The Lewiston Regional Technical Center will host the town hall forum from 6 to 7:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
The forum will be streamed live on the Sun Journal's website, sunjournal.com.
A panel consisting of the governor, several commissioners and Maine's treasurer will participate in the meeting, at which audience members will be encouraged to ask questions.
“I hope Mainers take the time to come to the town hall, ask questions and engage with the people who are working for them," LePage said in a prepared statement. "I think people are realizing what our administration is trying to achieve and they are seeing results. We are listening to the people of Maine and as a result, changing the attitude within government.”
While he's in the area, the governor is expected to visit Geiger in Lewiston; K&K Excavation Inc. in Turner; and Savage Safe Handling Inc., Newfab Inc. and Proctor & Gamble Tambrands, all in Auburn.
“To build a stronger economy, we must listen to our job creators of today," LePage said. "Our business community has the key to unlock Maine’s economic growth potential, and this administration is ready and willing to listen to their needs so we can introduce policies which encourage job creation.”
LRTC is at 156 East Ave., at the site of Lewiston High School.
