LePage: Fighting to Preserve our Freedom, and Helping Strengthen our Economy


Veterans Day_1From the Office of Governor LePage:

AUGUSTA – On Monday, November 11, Maine and the entire Nation will celebrate and honor our true heroes – brave Americans who willingly put their lives on the line to defend the freedoms we all enjoy and oftentimes take for granted.

“I encourage all Mainers to reflect on the selfless sacrifices of America’s servicemen and servicewomen,” said Governor Paul R. LePage. “We owe them our most sincere appreciation and gratitude, because if it were not for them, we would not enjoy the many freedoms we have today.”

“While our appreciation extends to all veterans, we at the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) want to send out a special thanks to the many veteran business owners across our state and also those businesses that support our strong veteran population,” said DECD Commissioner George Gervais. “These veterans not only went above and beyond in their defense of our nation but many of them are now fighting to build businesses, create jobs, and advance a strong and vibrant economy.”

DECD and Governor LePage Account Executives have been in contact with veteran owned businesses, as well as businesses that are committed to serving veterans.

One entrepreneur from Danforth, Maine has designed a state-of-the-art swim fin, allowing amputee veterans to enjoy greater freedom. Another business owner from Saco, honors his veteran – father by donating a portion of his yearly profits to a veteran’s non-profit group.

“While serving in the U.S. Navy, I was fighting to protect the American Dream; now I’m fortunate enough to be living it here in Maine,” said Chris Tyll – owner of Pat’s Pizza and a soon to be owner of two new businesses ventures in southern Maine.

“Veterans have that grit and determination to succeed,” said Jason Violette, a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and co-owner of Little Pine IT Solutions in Orrington. “Despite the everyday challenges of owning your own business, we as veterans have the ability to find a way to get it done.”

The LePage Administration is committed to helping veterans and their families re-enter the workforce, whether business owner or valued employee. For example, Governor LePage recently signed a law expediting the process for veterans to secure much-needed business licenses.

Through the Hiring Our Heroes Job Fairs, veterans are able to meet face to face with Maine businesses and access various services including military-skill transition and interviewing in order to help land a good job.

Two of these job fairs are scheduled next week in Portland and Brunswick.


  1. Sad that LePage does not recognize the fact that tens of thousands of American lives have been sacrificed , and tens of TRILLIONS of American Taxpayer dollars have been wasted over the last 60 years for the benefit of the corrupt DC aristocracy , NOT in defense of the American homeland .
    LePage should be fighting for Constitutional Amendments to rein in the malignant metastatic federal aristocracy and restore the rights of the States and the People .
