Election Coverage and Results from Hancock, Knox and Waldo Counties, Maine

Paul LePage

Governors Race

Age: 73 

Residence: Edgecomb 

Party: Republican 

Previous elected positions: Waterville City Council, two terms; Mayor of Waterville, 2004 to 2011; Governor of Maine, 2011 to 2019 

Statement: LePage’s campaign did not respond to emails requesting information. The following is from his website: My vision for Maine is to create prosperity through a lower overall tax burden for residents and businesses; a smaller, more efficient state government that we can all afford; protecting our most vulnerable populations (our children, our seniors and persons with disabilities), empowering parents’ rights to decide their children’s future, and managing a welfare system that serves as a safety net for the truly needy – not a free for all. 

The website also notes, LePage survived homelessness in Lewiston after leaving a troubled home and he sought his education as a way out of poverty. He managed the Mardens store chain before entering politics.
