LePage Talks About UMaine in Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting Article

Gov. Paul LePage spoke about the University of Maine and its proposed offshore wind pilot project for an in-depth article on the governor by the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting. LePage, who is a UMaine alumnus, called the land grant university a “pretty good organization” and spoke about his preference for the institution over Norwegian company Statoil for the proposed project. Statoil pulled the plug on its $120 million offshore wind pilot project recently, leaving UMaine’s proposal as the only project being considered for a state contract. The Bangor Daily News, Sun Journal and Portland Press Herald also carried the report.
