Today;,Saturday, September 24, at 11:00 am hundreds of Mane actvists will gather on the Mall in Brunswick to demand that Governor Paul LePage resign from office immediately. A citizens group (MEFGA) renewed a request for his resignation in the wake of the unsuccessful effort by the state’s Democratic leadership to hold a special session in order to hold Governor LePage accountable for his continuing abuses of power and his threat on the lief of Rep. Drew Gattine.
In September of 2015, Mainers for Government Accountability (MEFGA) first called for the governor’s resigntation and the website DearLePage.com was launched. with the intent that Maine citizens would flood Governor LePage’s office with written requests to resign. Governor LePage said that if asked by the people, he would resign rather than face impeachment. Despite over 6,000 requests by Mainers, he did not resign.
There will be various speakers at the Rally including Rebecca Halbrook, founder of MEFGA.
