It is interesting to watch the pro-merger folks using two of Maine's staunch conservatives, Governor Paul LePage and Lewiston Mayor Bob Macdonald, for their own purposes. The Governor supplied the JCC with $50,000 of taxpayers money to get started with their little study of options. Macdonald is an ardent pro-merger supporter. Probably 99% of the pro-merger clan would vote against the both of them in any election they ran in.
They will both be discarded like a day old newspaper come November 8th by the people they are working with to get this big city built.
