The referendum Gov. LePage hates most

This week on the Beacon podcast, Mike interviews Yes on 2 campaign manager John Kosinski on the Stand Up for Students referendum. Governor Paul LePage has repeatedly said it’s the question on the ballot this November that he most opposes, because it undoes some of his tax breaks for the wealthy.

Also, updates on the minimum wage campaign, Black Lives Matter and the media’s response to Governor LePage’s serial lying.

Plus, a new sponsor: Robert’s Maine Grill!
