AUGUSTA - Today, Maine Republican Party Chair Dr. Demi Kouzounas released this statement following the Bangor Daily News reporting of many Maine Democrat candidates for Governor supporting the latest Maine People's Alliance push to raise taxes:
"Just the other day it was reported that Maine is the 3rd highest taxed state in our country, when factoring in property, sales and income taxes. If we could tax our way to prosperity, we would be rich already.
Democrats running for Governor who support this latest tax hike scheme are working for the Maine People's Alliance, not for the people of Maine. These Democrat politicians are frighteningly tone deaf and out of touch.
We will never attract and keep the people we need in Maine by making it even more expensive to live and work here."
