AUBURN — Gov. Paul LePage will be the guest speaker at the Auburn-Lewiston Breakfast Rotary Club on Wednesday, May 24, at the United Methodist Church, 439 Park Ave.

Gov. LePage will be presenting on many topics, including Maine’s tax burden and the need to lower Maine’s energy costs, as well as public education administrative costs.

The oldest son of 18 children, Gov. LePage left home at age 11 to escape domestic violence, and lived on the streets of Lewiston for two years, making a meager living shining shoes. At age 13, two families jointly “adopted” him. He excelled academically and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration in Finance and Accounting from Husson College. He then earned an MBA from the University of Maine. His private-sector experience includes consulting and management work in manufacturing, wood products, forestry, power, furniture, food and beverage, building supply, and construction in Maine and Canada. A business leader who served his community as mayor, LePage decided to run for governor, believing the approach that had succeeded throughout his business career and in Waterville could work for all of Maine.

Reservations are not required to attend. Breakfast is $10.
