Maine governor vowed transparency, now seeks more secrecy than law allows

Opinion from George Smith, writer and TV talk show host, via Kennebec Journal:

The governor forgets who he's working for these days. When he worked at Mardens, would he keep secrets from Mickey Marden? I think not. And these days, he works for us. In this situation, we're Mickey Marden, and Paul LePage is the manager of our business. And the state government is very definitely our business.

After promising the most transparent government in history, Gov. Paul LePage instead has delivered the most secretive. I've hung out at the Capitol for 40 years and never experienced anything like the secrecy of this administration. People in the administration are fearful of disclosing even a single tidbit of information.
