Governor LePage releases second statement on national monument  |

Statement of Governor LePage

AUGUSTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — Governor Paul LePage has released a second statement about the new north woods national monument.

One day after Roxanne Quimby’s company gifted the 87,000-acre parcel to the US Government, President Obama signed the order officially designating the area national monument.

Governor Paul LePage continued to be a vocal opponent of the process.

“President Obama is once again taking unilateral action against the will of the people, this time the citizens of rural Maine,” said Governor Paul LePage. “The Legislature passed a resolution opposing a National Monument in the North Woods, members of Maine’s Congressional delegation opposed it and local citizens voted against it repeatedly.’

‘Despite this lack of support, the Quimby family used high-paid lobbyists in Washington, D.C., to go around the people of Maine and have President Obama use his authority to designate this area a National Monument. This once again demonstrates that rich, out-of-state liberals can force their unpopular agenda on the Maine people against their will.’

‘Quimby is already well known for preventing hunting, snowmobiling, ATVs, forestry and other traditional activities on her land, and a National Monument will most likely restrict these uses even more. It is my understanding that for those few acres where hunting would be allowed, Quimby has attempted to recreate the restrictions found in the bear baiting referendum that the Maine people roundly rejected as recently as 2014.  If average Mainers don’t realize by now that the political system is rigged against them by wealthy, self-serving liberals from away, this is a serious wake-up call. The fix has been in all along.”
