LePage to speak in secret to miners, highway contractors #mepolitics

Republican Governor Paul LePage will speak to the Maine Aggregate Association this evening - that's the group representing Maine's gravel and rock industries. But the public won't be allowed to hear his comments.


Despite LePage's pushing of an East-West highway, and his recent relaxation of mining regulations, an official announcement was issued Monday from the governor's office specifying that the speech will be off-limits to media coverage.


Which leads us to wonder what he's going to say to the representatives of corporate interests who must be among his biggest fans. Here's the official announcement:
