Former Maine Governor Paul LePage today, Feb. 16 submitted enough signatures to qualify for the ballot, becoming the first gubernatorial candidate to do so.
LePage turned in ballot signatures today. He says Gov. Janet Mills should use surplus – which his campaign has called one-time, “funny money” – to immediately lower income tax.
Maine income tax accounts for ~40% of state revenue, or $1.6B.
Projected surplus is $830M#mepolitics pic.twitter.com/T6UKJOliYa
