As Maine’s workers prepare to celebrate Labor Day this weekend, Maine’s largest labor unions are making clear what the next priority is in the fight for workers’ rights in Maine—re-electing Governor Janet Mills and keeping Paul LePage and his virulently anti-labor policies out of the Blaine House.
Under Janet Mills, Maine’s first woman Governor, our state has made great strides towards respecting women, empowering women, and protecting women’s rights. On National Women’s Equality Day, let us celebrate the progress we have made and recommit ourselves to continuing that progress in the years to come.
Under the bipartisan leadership of Governor Janet Mills, Maine is leading when it comes to making college more affordable and tackling student loan debt relief, a stark change from the days of Paul LePage.
In a new video released today, Maine Democratic Party Chair Drew Gattine tells the full story behind the menacing and profanity-laden voicemail he received from Governor Paul LePage six years ago today.
“[Gov. Mills is] talking about revenue sharing five percent. Well, why don't we rightsize our schools and rightsize our governments, and then we could literally lower property taxes and they wouldn't need revenue sharing."
