The Bangor Daily News reports this morning that during Governor’s LePage’s time in office, Maine’s gross domestic product (GDP) increased by nearly 20% – from $51.87 billion in 2011 to $61.7 billion in 2017. The number of people working in Maine increased. In the story, Carl Flora, president and CEO of the Loring Development Authority in Limestone, said that while other events stole the attention, LePage, “was very concerned with trying to do things that could facilitate economic growth.” The former Air Force base now has 28 companies located there. “The headline for his legacy will be he held the line on spending. He was frugal and fiscally responsible,” Flora said. “I heard him say a number of times that ‘capital goes where it’s welcome.’” ALL OF THIS DESPITE THE NEARLY NON-STOP POLITICAL ATTACKS FROM OPPONENTS.
