I would like to thank the people of Maine for electing me to serve as your Governor for another four years. I am truly honored you have chosen me to lead our great state.

Hello, this is Governor Paul LePage.

I also want to thank the Maine people for seeing through the barrage of negative advertising that saturated our state over the past few months. Liberals spent almost 10-million-dollars to defeat me, and they did much more than stretch the truth.

Politicians often distort their positions and embellish their records. They certainly have the right to free speech and to voice their opinions. However, they do not have the right to alter facts and to deliberately spread falsehoods about their opponents.

I’m proud you saw through the misleading and deceitful attacks, and I’m pleased you validated the progress we have made.

This administration has been under siege from career politicians and the media for four years. But we have persevered, and we have accomplished an incredible amount of good for the Maine people.

No matter how tough it got, no matter how much they threw at us, we kept doing what we knew was right for the Maine people. That’s what we do. We get it done.

You want to keep creating jobs. You want to keep reforming welfare. You want to keep reducing taxes.

With your help, that’s what we will do. We will keep moving Maine forward.

As a homeless kid on the streets of Lewiston, I never thought I would become Governor of our great state. I am so grateful you gave me that chance.

I have lived the American Dream. Maine gave that opportunity to me. Now it’s my turn to give back.

I want every man, woman and child in Maine to have the chance to live the American Dream, too. Together, we can make it happen.

Once again, thank you so much for your support. Most of all, thank you to my family and to Ann.

She is a wonderful wife and mother, and she is an even better First Lady. She is absolutely devoted to our state, and I am so proud of her.

We look forward to serving you, the people of Maine, for the next four years.

Thank you for listening.
