Four crazy things Gov. LePage said this week (including threatening to leave Maine)

Four crazy things Gov. LePage said this week (including threatening to leave Maine)

Sometimes, especially since the election of President Trump, we forget that it isn’t normal to have a chief executive who lies, contradicts himself and makes strange policy proclamations on a daily basis. On this episode of the Beacon Podcast, Ben, Taryn and Mike examine a week in Maine politics through the lens of LePages actions and antics on health care, the minimum wage, Real ID,  taxes and his threats to leave the state.

Also, Ben’s book review recommendations by Rich Yeselson: When Labor Fought for Civil Rights and At Labor’s Crossroads.

And a reminder to join us Wednesday at the State House to stand up for the minimum wage.
