Our July meeting was not heavily attended, 
but what an informative meeting it was with
Carol Woodcock from Susan Collins' 
Washington office having time to answer
lots of questions--many of which centered 
on illegal immigration!  It was a very spirited discussion.

Governor LePage could use letters to the editors of newspapers.  Many of our Maine newspapers are owned by prominent Democrats so their news is not necessarily unbiased.  However, if flooded with letters, they eventually have to print them.  Governor LePage's administration paid the hospitals; saved the teachers' retirement which was bankrupt due to past "borrowing"; gave a 100% tax cut to the working poor; and just this week announced that only eight states have won grants--all of them led by Republican Governors. Augusta--Governor Paul R. LePage released a statement yesterday about the Workforce Investment Act Incentive Grant that Maine has earned by hitting Program Year 2012 performance goals.  It's the first time in twelve (12) years that Maine qualified for an incentive grant.  Maine's unemployment rate is very low, especially compared to national numbers.  Yet, all one seems to hear is that LePage is terrible.  Is this because he is Republican, stopping people from stealing from the citizens, or because he is Franco-American?  One doesn't know.  But the good people of Maine need to know that he is helping all of us in Maine!

Bruce Poliquin has been a friend of the HCRC for a long time.  He has been willing to attend and speak at meetings for years whether he has been running for anything or not.  Please support him the way he has always supported us.
